Front DS Rebuild, double Cardon Joint

I have a 04 Rubicon and am trying to rebuild the front driveshaft. I have all the new u joints but the centering ball in the double cardon joint is giving me grief. I ordered the rebuild kit for it but the joint is extremely stiff and the oil seal will not stay on. I've tried to order a new joint but the only one I can find online is the wrong one (spicer 211355x). Any ideas on how to fix or where to get the correct joint? I'm scheduled to go wheeling next week and need to get the driveshaft off the work bench! Any help is much appreciated!!!!!

Northern Drivetrain, I believe this is the greasable one for a Rubicon with 1330 joints http://www.northerndrivetrain.com/pr...I-211179X.html, non-greasable http://www.northerndrivetrain.com/pr...I-211996X.html

There is also Drive Line Service of N. Atlanta at 6285 Buford Hwy just south of Jimmy Carter Blvd. 770-242-9366

Just to confirm:

Non-Greasable Centering Yoke Spicer 211996X

Non greasable (sealed) is the one you want.

I'll be rebuilding my front DS next weekend. Can't wait...

These guys are quite a bit cheaper and include new bolts.

That is the less expensive unsealed greasable version.
