Did you spray something on it?

If not, then I'd say your pinion seal is leaking.

U joint looks good... But have someone slowly shift between forward and reverse... While holding the brakes ... And the shaft and the yoke should move together in time... If one moves like farther than the other or like slowly out of time (if you get what im saying) .. Then its bad.... A bad u- joint will usualy make like a high pitch fluctuating squeak.

The leaking stuff (If you didn't spray that one there) looks like the pinion seal is leaking. If that is the case i would just ignore the leak and just be sure it dont get worse.. And keep the level full. And start looking for a rear end out of a popo car http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys/yes.gif ..

BK....this is my suburban smile.gif popo rear end no worky.... smile.gif

No, I didn't spray anything on it. The reason I started looking at them is because I noticed the other day while driving the suburban that when going from reverse to drive or vice versa there was a "clunk" so it's lead me to believe that I may have a bad u-joint(s). I believe they are the originals and the vehicle has 120k miles on it now.

Yeah... :/ I would hope its the ujoint making that noise but i bet it ain't. Isn't that about when those rear ends go out on those damn things?

I haven't heard about rear end issues http://i1220.photobucket.com/albums/dd448/NorthportTroller/Smileys2/shrug.gif ....and this hasn't been driven hard at all so I'd doubt the rear end is going out.

Also, the "clunk" is very faint and not real loud at all.

How would a bad pinion seal push fluid out around the u-joint?

Old, you got to get the stress off the driveshaft and check it for play.

I see some rust under there too.....
