Going though u-joint faster than gas

hey guys,
Got a problem with keeping u-joint on the drive shaft. About a month ago i put new u-joints onthe front and rear of the drive shaft, they worked perfectly. About 2 weeks later i wasd looking over the truck and noticed a lot of play in the drive shaft. Guess why, bad u-joints. So i brought to a different guy this time and then again about 2 weeks later BAM again bad u-joints. So i looked at the pinion angles and the are bad, they are almost straight. Then i check the cross member that holds the tranny and transfer case on and the was perfect. What the he$$ is going on. Any help is great. Thanks
