Being in Flint I imagine there's got to be a drive train specialist somewhere near you. I'm in the process of either greasing or rebuilding my front shaft, so I may need that part (don't know yet.) You may want to hold out to get the Spicer part - while you're at it, get the grease-able one too. If you go the Advance route, make sure the part is made in the USA - or you'll be taking a chance at hating foreign steel parts soon enough. If you're in a hurry, you can get a used shaft for around $75 and throw it in for now:

I'm not positive about what length you'll need, but you'd better double and triple check. Sounds like you've got the shorter one like I do and they're harder to find... many JY confuse them as interchangeable for the long ones. For the short one, ask if the weld to weld measurement is around 17 - the longer one is around 20".

(mangled the outer lip pretty good, use a ziptie to hold back the yoke when your putting the last ujoint in, you know what im talking about when you get there)

I wish I had read the zip tie trick before I did it, good idea, wish I had thought of it ,It was real tricky getting that pressed back together with that spring tension on it. I have done plenty of U joints but never a double.
Took back the repair kit got the other parts.
I straightened up, cleaned up, dressed up the lip on the drive shaft with a round nose Rotary file in the die grinder. By the time I got done you could hardly tell it was bunged up, worked out real good. Well I had to because I put it all together and was hitting the banged up part and jamming up, but it's all good now.7 new U joints altogether , Just have to take it for drive here in a Little bit to see if I solved the small vibration deal. IDK but it was screwed up enough to cause a vibration.

I just wanted to get this thing put back together and thought it may work but it was still vibrataing, the end of the driveshaft where the center ball goes was all banged up and I don't know. I guess bent.
Took the shaft off. No vibration picked up the driveshaft at the junkyard $40 put all the new U joints in that driveshaft, put the driveshaft back in,greased her up, put new Timken hubs on the front, changed TC case fluid and she drives like a brand-new Jeep, but her rear is still singing to me.

PS.
Since the centering yoke ball and spring on the junkyard shaft were in good shape. I did not replace it.
I cleaned it up, pumped it full of grease, there is a hole in the bottom of the ball and a cavity underneath to hold grease.
