Drive axle or CV joint.


yep sounds like a cv join to me. This is also a older car so it could be the dif bearings in the trany. best way to find out is grab an axel and push it back and forth up and down if the main holding cup shifts or moves (the place mounted into the trany) it most liekly needs a couple bearings. also sure sign is that area will be covered in what will look like oil but is realy trany fluid. Im betting its most likely a bad cv tho.
