Buy some Spicer straps, or swap it out for a bigger yoke....also looks like you could benefit from a traction bar

You can use those, but you have to machine your yoke out. Spicer is a brand...you can get straps like your stock ones but they are alot better. Traction bar will help more than anything with a SOA though

Any place that fixes driveshafts should have it in stock. Just make sure its Spicer brand. Traction bar you are gonna need to build yourself.
