My credo
If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
Check with a shop that makes driveshafts.

^^^^^ best bet is to take your driveshaft to a shop and they will probably have what you need. Part #'s don't really mean a whole lot when dealing with older vehicles

I was able to order the replacement Dana boots from northerndrivetrain.com. They list the O.D. of the boots. Was easy to take measurements of the shafts and find the correct part number.

i was measuring the tube and not at the shaft, which is why I couldn't find one in the size I thought I needed. I got a used one from a driveline shop for $5. And was informed that I failed to assemble the double cardan properly and my entire shaft is pretty much garbage. I'm trying to decide if I was to try to fix it, or just buy a shaft complete.
