Default U-Joints?

A while back I had read that the MSM had serviceable u-joints. I called up my dealer the other day and I have been told that they are no longer available.
I did a search and did not really find what I was looking for. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

No Idea on the MSM shaft but I have found they are more expensive than the regular 1.8 shaft by a good bit but if you go to a drive shaft shop I got my whole new shaft made with bigger replaceable u joints for $211 after taxes and all not so bad if you don't ever have to buy another shaft and they made it in 3 days. Not sure if this helps you or not.

This seems to be just about what other people have said elsewhere about other driveshaft issues. I am already at least 2k into a motor build and I was hoping to save some on just being able to replace a $30 u-joint. But I would also rather not blow it the hell up putting 300+ horsepower through it.
