The replacement joints are difficult to install and sometimes don't sit correctly in the center so you may still end up with a vibration.
Junkyard would be your best bet.

The problem with buying a 2nd hand / used drive shaft is that you could end up with the same problem.
Drive shafts with staked in joints are rebuildable - most use rockford / duralast kits.
Haven't rebuilt staked in u jointed shaft but have rebuilt the u - joints on my Brat driveshaft which had circlips retaining the cups inside. Can't remember what brand the kits were.
The inner edge of the cups were grooved that the circlips clipped into, which located / centrailsed the joints. (probably similar to kits)
I used the right size socket with yoke held correctly in bench vice to tap out old / tap in new cups.
There are youtube demonstrations on how to rebuild staked in u- joints also.

The missing bit is "watch" and seems to bring up the link incorrectly
