    My 2000 just went through that. It was the rear u-joints. They were bone dry and some of the needles were gone. So your best bet will be to a) check and see if there are any grease fittings on the u-joints and grease the heck outa them b) get them replaced

    I got greaseable u-joints from napa autoparts. They were 25 bucks each. 97dollars a piece is rediculous!!!! Just be sure not to get any dirt inside of the caps or lose a needle bearing, or you are screwed and have to go buy a new one. After you install them, give a good shot of grease, then lube them roughly every 3000 miles. Good luck!!
