Where to buy a rear drive shaft

My rear drive shaft broke, and I can't find anyone that sell them. The dealer told me it is an obsolete part. Anyone know where I can buy one?

A junk yard is probably your best bet, or a driveline shop...

I think rockauto.com sells them or try drivetrainspecialists.com for one.
However as Phy says junk yard is probably going to be the cheapest (if you can find the right WB one).

Where are you located? I might have one thats fits.
Junkyards will be decently priced, just becareful thats its not messed up from the forklifts! One I bought when I was doing my 4x4 conversion ended up being dented and vibrated like a *******.

What do you mean by broke?

Forget which wb is which. This is an F250, so either reg cab or supercab, in 2wd. I don't have that length here.

Besides, there should be a driveline shop somewhere near you that can repair it, there's a whop here that has new tubes, and new yokes, and can pretty well make any combination that one wants.

Sounds like he broke one of the yokes...

Look for a driveline shop near you. They can replace the broke yoke and rebalance the shaft.

Yeah I broke one of the yokes. The closest shop I've been able to find is in Austin, which is about an hour away.
