They are not available. People have found various aftermarket joints that would fit. They all break. Even if you could get the original joints, they would still fail in a short period of time. The caps are very thin allowing for a thicker cross. Once there is play, the play causes the yokes to get beat up and distorted. That distortion would prevent proper backing of the new joints and they would fail. It is best to just replace the entire shaft.
