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.
thanks for responding..was curious could i bring it to your shop so u could take a look?im new and dont know where to go
Maybe give this shop a call they are in your area and have great reviews
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 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
Front shafts on the Discovery II do not have grease fittings. Very common issue for a front u-joint to go and break causing the shaft to take out the trans. The solution is either getting u-joints with grease fittings or a new front shaft with grease fittings installed. They are available at many locations online for about $350 or so. Easy to install. Replacing the shaft with a factory replacement will cause the problem to reoccur eventually.
