Rear Driveshaft

I have had a leak where the rear driveshaft mates to the transfer case. It is throwing oil all over my muffler and the underside of the truck. The leak leaves a small puddle overnight under the truck on the ground. I had my mechanic replace the seal between the transfer case and the driveshaft but it is still leaking. We are now thinking we need to replace the U joint and the Yoke. Any ideas on where I might be able to order these?

well if he just replaced the seal it will leak if he didnt ajust the spring in the seal. i am sure the yoke is warn too. if it was caused by dirt, dust or sand, it will dig into the yoke and even a new seal wont seal right. if it was my truck i would have replaced both at the same time.

Tried the Ford dealership I work at, no luck. Ford doesn't make them anymore. I will have to check out your other suggestion though. Thanks.

I have a local shop here I am going to try next week after I pull the old driveshaft. If they cannot help I will let you know. Thanks for the help.
