Not if you have the SL DS. There be 3 u-joints then. But I only replaced the front diff to ds u-joint last night, as well as the 2 on the rear ds (those 2 sucked; the blood blister on my right thumb and my destroyed phone agrees).

it was $400 for a new one through Autozone.. best bet is a junk yard, i'm gonna go pick up like 2 or 3 for spares since the drive shaft is so low with the 9"


Austin Drive Train, now has a new name but i still know it as ADT. Good guys, great prices. they quoted me at $350 for a brand new front drive shaft with a CV joint

You can take that CV apart, clean it up, and repack it with grease. That will just postpone you having to replace it or like others said fab up a flange for a double cardan joint. I have rebuilt mine a few times because I haven't gotten around to finishing my shaft with a regular joint. Mine also doesn't spin all the time either because of the coupler my dad and I built so I don't have to have mine perfect.
