about 2 hours labor plus the cost of the shaft, But these have replaceable u-joints and center support bearings, So maybe its just one of these components that need replacement

Thanks for the response, thats what i was quoted was 2 hrs. But I was told that on this model of car the u joint was not replacable would need entire new drive shaft and i should also replace the support bearing.

Look up the u-joints on and they show them there from$69 to $84 depending on manual or automatic trans, I put shaft in the search box for Propeller shaft and scroll down

labor should be around $700. There are shops to rebuild the drive shafts.
