Default rebuilt front driveshaft or buy used?

My constant velosity needs rebuilt on my front driveshaft of my 96 dodge ram 1500.

Should I get it rebuilt or buy a used drive shaft from a parts place?

Any advice? About 1 1/2 yrs ago, I bought a rear drive shaft for $50.00 from a junk yard in north muskegon and it's been just fine.

Was told it costs $200 or so to rebuild a driveshaft.


Thanks Kindly
