Don't know from my Bimmer experience, but that sounds like what happens to all split driveshaft cars I've had when the CV, U joint, or center support bearing/rubber support started to go bad. I'd start there first.

: Hey, how often do these need to be replaced? What are the signs of them going out? Is it that annoying vibration @ 700-800 RPMS in 1st gear when you start moving? Just curious.
