My 89' B2 has a CV joint rear drive line that had bad boots.....I cleaned it up, greased it and put universal boots on it. It has a bit of play at both ends and when I get up to around 60+ mph it starts to vibrate a tad bit.....not horrible and not noticeable below 60. I want to replace it with a u-joint drive shaft. Does anyone have any recommendations for where to buy? I found a Cardon re-built at RockAuto for $294 (shipped). Seems like a good enough deal for what everyone else is asking.

Back when I bought mine I looked around and I could get it from multiple sources for around $300.
I ended up buying it from Jeffs Bronco Graveyard to support them. No issues with them or the driveshaft.

Apparently I was at the wrong site (Jeffs Bronco Graveyard)......That looks like the exact same thing that Rock Auto sells.....same price. Thanks.

Got the driveline from Rock Auto ($275 with shipping), installed it and went for a check ride. It fixed several problems: (1) A hard clunk when going from P/N to F/R gear, (2) a low speed growl which I thought was a pinion bearing, (3) and lastly a vibration above 65 mph. Drives real nice now and reasonably quiet. Changed all the tie rods and am scheduled for a front end alignment Friday. All that's left is the headliner, a new windshield, and paint
