Thanks for the info, guys. I just picked one up from a buddy of mine. Looking at the one I broke, it really wasn't the shaft. I took off the rubber boot and it was the u-joint that actually let go. Wonder if you can just buy that one part instead of the whole shaft?
way easier to buy the whole shaft with new CV joints and new boots on both ends. I tried just replacing a boot on one one time and it didn't last long and the joint went out on me anyway.
so, as long as you have the whole thing out, replace it with a new one. and, don't forget to turn in the old one as a core.
