infront of the centre bearing there is a slip joint where they are joined and a cross and yoke uni

if they fail or worn yes

if the rubber goes, usually cracks and disintergrates - replace, the cross and yokes if they get play in the needle bearings, then overhaul the joint, centre bearing wears and flops about - replace, and slip joint normally dosnt wear
