rear drive shaft

I have alot a problems with my rear drive shaft like blowing out u-joints every three months or so. what is the solution? is there a better rear yoke set-up? is there a better u-joint set-up? or a better shaft? it is no fun dropping the shaft while climbing a hill or while out anywhere, I also noticed lastnight my front axel u-joint at the knuckle is begaining to get loose (rusty-dry-loose-sloppy-ect...)

Re: rear drive shaft

How much lift do you have? (Sorry, just read your other thread)
Might be SYE/CV time.
Could it be bent?
Does it vibrate?
