I don't think so, but if you find a good junkyard one they can be quite cheap and work just as good.

I know the vibration can be very annoying, mine were bad for over a year it vibrated so much the mirror would shake.

This might be the best way to go about replacing one.

Re: I Found a Shop That Can Replace WK U-Joints…

See what happens when we come together to figure something out. We have more options now, and it's not even spring.
Well done Jeepers
Justin if you go to a real parts store like one that supplies shops, or actual mechanics you probably would have a better chance. Some will try to match it, and some can take the specs using them to find the new part. Good luck in your hunt , and don't forget to let us know about what you're able to find.

Can't I hate that f-ng word!

Re: I Found a Shop That Can Replace WK U-Joints…

I might see if he will make me a custom one 60 mm longer than stock for me. Depends really if he will send to Australia or not.

He has one for the NV140 transfercase too.
