Sounds like you need a new rear seal.

No. Just drop the drive shaft out and replace the seal. Not that hard of a job on most older cars.

I hope it's just a rear seal. Oftentimes, the bushing in the tailshaft housing is wiped out because the Transmission is wiped out. Driving with a bad u-joint can have the same effect - shake the crap out of it until all the bushings, seals and bearings give way.
