Double Cardan Front Driveshaft question

Does anybody know where I can get an aftermarket replaceable double-ended spicer u-joint front driveshaft for not a lot of $$$. I have seemed to again wear out my second factory driveshaft cv joint near the transfer case, within this same year after I already fixed it once. There is a greater angle on the cv joint due to the RCD lift I have installed. I don't understand why the joint is still wearing because there is a spacer that came with the kit to make up the shorter distance in the driveshaft. I don't want to keep spending $100 at a time to replace the front cv joint on the shaft, when I can get a beefier driveshaft to replace it. Just wondering if you guys know of any links to aftermarket driveshaft specialists, or any other information is helpful as well.

I picked up that one on e-bay and someone ended up raising the price on me. Oh well, it was only $285.00 instead of $400+ Thanks for the info.
