You should be able to get a tailshaft from any C4 in a junkyard, they're all the same except for 4wd obviously.

The output shaft will have some slop in it, what direction is the slop in? side to side, front to back?

If there weren't any sudden stops of the tranny i would think it'd be ok still. What kind of u-joint was it? My friend got a set of greaseable ones from AutoZone for his Yukon and broke one, turns out the grease hole was drilled off center and that caused it to fail.

Well, if it beat around enough to break the tailshaft housing it could've broken something. Basically the things it could hurt is the output shaft bearing/bushing, and the output drum and related components if it wobbled too much.

I guess a transmission shop or a Ford dealer might be able to get one, but a junkyard would be where I'd look. I got a whole C4 for $30, so you shouldn't pay over 20-25 for just the tailshaft housing, if even that much.
