Default Busted up my drivetrain

my frt diff busted (pictured is where the right axle shaft goes in) i beleive when the right inner shaft broke and the non-c-clip mod became useless the inner shaft walked out a little then got jammed upward causing the break

and my doubler shaft sheared in half, the welds and the keyway onthis shaft were intact, the shaft iteslf broke right above the welds

i am seriously thinking of going solid axle in the front and full width, i already have a 1979? front f250 leaf sprung 44, if i do i'll have a bunch of SkyJacker lift parts etc....not sure if i want to yet or not

forgot a pic, heres the inner joint ....... usually i just break the ears off but this time it went all the way down the splines
