: Can someone Please confirm the Diagnosis a mechanic
: told me when hearing a squeaky rotational noise at begining of accleration. He says U-Joints, anyone familiar
: with this. Also whats the best fix, Should the whole drive shaft be sent out for rebuild, it has new guibo. TIA

could also be a rear halfshaft boot; or your center support for the driveshaft. Jack the car up and see if there is any play at the u-joints;more common to hear or feel clunking at startup or letting off the gas
