Ok just a bit of an update on this...I heard a sort of knock from that area and the grind now feels like more of a slack area in the u-joint....like if i go from reverse to drive i can feel it slip and knock into place..u know what i mean? i am gonna remove the boot and inspect it soon....

this u-joint is new though..i dont understand...

also, what can happen if i just leave it alone and just keep driving that way? can any sort of catastrophic failure happen from a worn u-joint?
