    The rear driveshaft U joint is a flex coupling , the labor to replace would be about an hour. I don't have a price for the part, (may be dealer only for the part).

    The front drive shaft has three u joints (mechanical traditional type joint). The front joints are about $30 each about .7 each to replace plus .5 hour to remove drive shaft.

    I sure they do as most shops do u-joints, But the best thing to do is to call them and tell them you found them on Repairpal.com and explain what the problem is to the best of your knowledge and bring it by their shop for a diagnoses. If it is a u-joint as Pat said its only 3/4 of an hour to replace one plus the u-joint $30
