Looks like you're in a tight spot, Chad. There is no parts breakdown
for the propeller shaft; only complete unit 443 521 101. OTH, I do
recall someone posting the name of a Denver area rebuilder a few
months ago. Probably was you, right? I wonder if your rebuilder
might be able to cross to a similar part from a different car. Also
ask Ben Howell. I think he knows a lot about parts sourcing.
