Front drive shaft on a 98 Explorer 5.0 Lt Help

Fellas
I'm glad I found this web site. Good to be here. But my wife's Explorer blow the GKC Constant Velocity joint on the front drive shaft. Does anyone know of a good place to get one biult or new?
Moved to St Thomas,On 2 years ago. Was told London drive systems are back in business? Or anywhere else? I'm not paying 1000$ for a OEM one. Was told there is a mod to change it to a 3 U joint system?
98 Explorer 5.0 Lt XLT AWD.
Thanks
Dave

The problem is the CV joint. Not too many can.

when I put the C6 in my truck a few years back they built a new driveshaft for me for less than $400 including paint and balancing. They build them for all the hot rods and 4x4's down there and they do it really quickly too. They had mine done in about 3hrs

Transaxle in Stoney Creek is pretty good too. Got all 3 of mine done. I think the bill came in around $500~600.
