T31 Tailshaft/Uni Joints

So last night the rear uni joint collapsed on our diesel T31. The one right at the back of the two piece tailshaft in front of the rear diff.

The workshop that I drove it to after tying the tailshaft up off the road just called and said that uni is non serviceable and the unit has to be replaced complete right from the transfer case/gearbox to the rear diff including both pieces of the tailshaft and the centre bearing.

Has anyone got any experience with this and is there any other way around it?

Seems a dumb move from Nissan or a smart move to gouge us for the whole assembly instead of just replacing a uni joint?

Re: T31 Tailshaft/Uni Joints

O know the uni joints in the T30 tailshaft are fixed pressed-in type and usually require replacement of the entire tailshaft but there are internet how-to's on replacing non-replacable uni joints. You just have to find the correct replacable uni joint for the tailshaft yokes.
