I may have explained it poorly the first time I told the story. Let me try again. At 100k miles on my GS I decided to replace the driveshaft as part of a minor overhaul. I bought a used driveshaft and sent it to MSI. When I got it back I installed both halves of the refurbished driveshaft and kept my original driveshaft as a spare. 5000 miles later the front half of the refurbed driveshaft failed. I replaced the front half with my old front half. The rear half failed at a later time. I replaced it with the other half of my old driveshaft. The bottom line for me is that both u-joints on the driveshaft refurbed by MSI failed in a relatively short period of time.
