    The rear half shafts are about 2.2 hours to remove and replace each (differential out to each rear wheel).
    I don't have times on replacing the main drive shaft that goes from the transmission to the rear differential.
    The flex couplings look like this image

    Thank you for your answer; however, I'm looking for a ball park figure in replacing the drive shaft. Can anyone give me a dollar amount on this repair? Thanks.
