Should be 15200239 but it's gonna be discontinued from GM.  Dorman makes one but I dunno if I'd trust it.. but it's the only new one listed on Rockauto, other ones all appear to be the wrong application/length.  At $633+shipping for a Dorman piece, I think I'd be checking for a local driveshaft shop to you and see what they could hook you up with.

Dorman not known for quality in materials or design across the board, in most cases lesser quality than OEM.  I have no idea if their driveshafts are any good.  If it's all you can find, it'll have to do though, right?  Hope it works out well.  It may be just fine as long as you aren't beating on it.  Your original one may have failed due to corrosion or prior abuse.

It failed because i lowerd my truck 3/4..my driveshaft was hitting the crossmember..then this winter my truck bottomed out with all tje snow built up in the bed..went over a bump and it was strong enough to break the driveshaft.

Might want to check your pinion angle because I had my ss at 5/7 drop and it was barely rubbing on that crossmember
