A Universal Joint (u-joint) is the flexible piece at each end of your driveshaft. You want both ends replaced. It may cost around 150-200 to repair . Call a repair shop, they can give a quote as long as thats all you need, but most will want to see it first, because you may need more if there is driveshaft damage.
you can but it will mean swaping out alot of other parts as well. You will have to change the radiator, driveshaft, console shifter, and you will also have to look at the auto transmision you want to put in make shure it does not have any sensors or wires on the side of it. if so you will have to change the back wiring harness and transmision control module will have to be added. I would just recomend trading some one with an auto matic one. It is easy to go from auto matic trans to manual in those cars but can be alot of work to go from manual to auto.
You'll need to find a tail piece for the transmission, a 2WD driveshaft and probably a trans mount crossmember. The driveshaft needs to come out of a truck that had that transmission installed in it to be the right length.
You should be able to find all this in a scrap yard or auto salvage yard for a decent price ($200 range) unless it is a fiberglass driveshaft. To have a driveshaft built custom for your truck will probably cost around $350. Hope this helps.
