U-Joints dont have any fluid. They do have grease in them. The best way to find a leak is to clean the entire area first, drive the vehicle a short distance at relatively low speed, then check the area again. Fluid leaks tend to fan out and disperse so finding the original source without cleaning first is difficult. Make sure you find the highest point of leakage. Thats usually where the problem is.

Like Michael said it's not the U-Joint, but I suspect it's your transmission tailshaft seal. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DquzSfMWiPc
