Buy a new U-joint or new HD GBR shafts

I have a rear U-joint going bad..quick. I have a 2inch rovertym lift. Should I just replace the rear joint or bite the bullet and buy new shafts. Will I have a continous problem w the joints due to the lift. thanks

Ujoints are wear items. 400 on a drive shaft or a 30 dollar u joint. I was able to address my issues with rear links from rover tracks

US made u-joint is about $15, Neapco/PDQ 1-005 from Advance Auto.
Or $30 for a precision 344.
If one is bad, I'd do them both.
Yes they are wear items, but they'll wear a lot longer if greased correctly, and also greased at least every oil change. 5,000 miles is the service interval for "normal" use.

with a 2 inch lift you should not have to modify the driveline angle to te point of needing a new d/shaft.
I would replace the ujoints and call it a day.
