I suppose this is about the center drive shaft, not the half shafts to the wheels.
So...try this (from the 2007 shop manual)

www.avigex.ca/sx4/driveshaft.pdf

NOtice this shaft is said to require total replacement but several have been able to have the u-joints replaced. There is a thread somewhere about this....ahh..yeah found it..but it relates to a place in Canada....I do not know where you live...????? They were talking of Rockford u-joints that have been used for replacement http://rockforddriveline.com/replacem.htm though I do not see Suzuki in their list....but it is said their instruction sheet gives useful details even if SUk not listed.

try this also https://www.powertrainindustries.com/about.htm
