Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello,  I have a lot of radial slop in my steering, approx, 1" on the steering wheel, and have isoloated to the Steering Coupler Rag Joint, see pic.   at the rag joint you can turn it with your hand, and see the rag joint not turning with the attaching bolts.
Does anyone have any idea where I can buy an OEM, or aftermarket Rag Joint?  Or ideas on how to fix the joint, maybe use Apoxy??? dealer ship didn't have it, have tryied several junk yards, and searching online.

I'd say try o'reilly auto parts, autozone, any of the other autoparts stores and keep on with the salvage yards, other than that I've got nothing more
