There are a wide variety of opinions on the relative quality of the two columns which you will garner here. They are generally functionaly identical. Both FR and Ididit make columns of spec length for installation with factory steering boxes and for installation with aftermarket R&P (i.e. shorter). If the column you have is for a stock steering box installation, you will likely need to shorten it for intallation with your R&P.

the reason that i ask is because i have installed a power rack conversion and i am having trouble with the intermediate shaft u-joints binding because they are at too much of an angle. the kit from the supplier recommends an Ididit tilt column but i already had a flaming river unit so i thought it would work. both columns are the same length 30"
