That is a double cardan joint. Handles steeper angles better than single ujoint. Is it harder to rebuild than a single ujoint? Yes, but still not that tough. IIRC good writeup on Stu Olson's site.

You also need to change the centering joint when re-doing the cv head, best bet is to see your local driveline shop for it

I rebuilt my front drive shaft for the first time about a week ago. With the right tools, it really isn't that difficult.
