From what I've been told by my mechanic and word of mouth that's correct. They are designed
as a throw away piece, when they wear the only way to fix it is to chuck it out and start again.

The center joint in an original driveshaft for VX is a staked joint, which means it cannot be replaced.

Hardy Spicer can make you a new shaft with a replaceable joint in the center so in the future you can change it with no hassles.

I would expect to pay around $8-900 for a new shaft including balancing
