rear propshaft joints

On a 2007 WK CRD can the universal joint in the back of the rear propshaft be replaced?
I have just replaced the pinion seal and found the joint has a tight spot!,

They are designed not to be. Only a few have successfully done it and many have not had good results trying.
Best option is to go with a steel one with serviceable joints for the future. Much cheaper than OEM too.
