I had two Challengers back in the day.  Both were totaled as the
result of the steering sector shaft breaking.

Whow, I never heard of such a thing.  Where these manual or power steering.

Did the shafts actually break? or did the pillow blocks in the coupler fall out?
If I cant fix it, it's broke

Both were power steering. I didn't actually see the shaft in either case. My mechanic told me the shaft was broken on the first failure ('70 Challenger).
