    well i took my front drive shaft with me today to get some parts that noone has, and the driveshaft place that i took it to said that i needed a whole new shaft cause the slip yoke had a little play and one of the ujoint caps spun freely when i swiveled it up and down. they quoted a probable $350 but lmc has them for 250. i ordered all new ujoints and the ball seat thingy $60 im hoping that the shaft will last a couple of more years what does everyone think i should do replace it right away or put it off for a while? any recomendations as to where i can get shafts any cheapert than lmc?
