There's no way you can get a NEW front DS for 150$ if it's built from high quality parts like Spicer or Neapco.
Check the front DS part prices from any driveline- related shop and you will understand that it costs a whole lot more to build a new one.
If you have no play/ minimal play in the front DS slip joint, I'd just rebuild the front DS.
I'm using a front DS out of my first XJ on my ZJ niner. I rebuilt the front DS about ten years ago - it was then used on my first XJ, then on my second XJ, and now on my ZJ. Front DS currently has 250k+ miles on it, and the slip joint cointing on the male splines is still there.
