I wish you had said exactly what Vehicle you have.

There is a U-joint available for the W123s and several Years ago when I replaced the U-joint on Mine it was about $20 each for the new U-joint.

There is an old thread on replacing the U-joint

My Benz World post with all of the U-joint sources. Has some sources of the U-joint in it.
