Destroyed CV ball assembly

After taking my front driveshaft apart today, I found the culprit of my destroyed t-case. The CV centering ball was obliterated. I already have a the ball kit, but need the yoke. Problem is, theres something welded to the tip of my driveshaft that was also warped from the carnage. How do I go about fixing this?



Centering ball assembly:




Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Hate to tell you this, but you're going to need a new driveshaft. That "obliterated" part is the pin where the centering ball sits. Maybe one of the big driveshaft shops has a repair...

BTW, the centering ball has a very small, flush zerk fitting. You use a special adaptor on your grease gun, and lube the centering ball every 3 months or so. Then you won't have this problem. Don't feel bad; everyone forgets to lube this part.

The road goes on forever, the party never ends....

Well I learned the hard way I guess. So could I pull one from a JY? And would the driveline shops just cut and reweld a new one?

Quoted $70 for repair and re-balance from a shop. Found some used shafts running $75-100. Which one?
