Today the yoke, the joint and the yoke on the drive shaft broke on our durango. Any rough estimates of how much this will cost to repair? Thanks!

    Removal and refitting of the drive shaft between the transmission and the rear axle is about .6 to .8 hours labor. If your shaft has broken at the u-joint it is probably cheaper to replace the shaft or buy a wrecking yard shaft and have it rebuilt/rebalanced. Do a local search (Google driveshaft rebuilder), it is a straight forward replacement once you have the part if you are mechanically inclined.

    It is broken at the u joint and we thought we would replace the whole shaft we just don't have a clue what is a "reasonable" estimate for one would be. It happened after businesses were closed and I came upon this site and thought I would see what we came up with. Thanks
