Rotation & angle of universal joint?

It should be possible by extending the steering wheel direction and finding the best intersection point on it instead of blindly using a point B.

That's exactly what I'm thinking. I envision a feature I call "vector snapping"—it's similar to rotation snapping (as suggested here), but instead of finding the angle to snap to a nearby single part, it finds the intersection of two relative axes: that of the part/assembly being rotated, and that of another one nearby, allowing you to translate the second part/assembly along its own azimuth to intersect the one being rotated.

(I envision it as a snapping feature, but I suppose it doesn't have to be. You'd probably already know which second axis you want to align with, so you could just select the two axes and apply a function to find the intersection point.)
