i'm sure you can but them, but why not just get a used shaft, or the at least the half with both u joints.

why do you need the u joints? what's the car doing.?

Replaced rear diff three weeks ago because of noise coming from rear end with slight vibration when letting off the accelerator at high speeds, we had it lifted up and noise was coming from front diff bearing or driveshaft u-joint. During replacement of diff. I noticed that the back u-joint had grooves wore into it. The noise still remains but no where close to being as bad, same with vibration. I haven't been able to find any full driveshafts or halfs, and i am hoping to find a replament u-joint for a lot less then a driveshaft.

have you tried "car-part.com" ??? i have a shaft out of a 97 obw, but i may need part of it. i'm not very smart about drive shafts, but i know thw front u-joint is right next ot the support berring. are you sure it's the u-joint??

i don't even know if the ujoints are replaceable. search the salvage yards for a shaft.

Go to junk yard dog and type in your request, they will then post it and you will get offers from lots of places that have them.
