had some bad vibes, took out the front driveshaft and replaced the U-joint on the differential side, checked the back DS and found that 1 of the bolts on the flange was gone, another almost out and the other two were loose. Replaced all those with locketite-ed bolts and changed the oil while i was down there.

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.
