    vibration problem /rattle clicking noise

    Ok so last night when coming home I made a left hand turn n all of a sudden a weird rattle /clicking noise came out of no wer , it sounded like it was an engine rattle but I would rev engine and no rattle from engine . The engine was fine the clicking would always come out when accelarating and go away when I get speed . So I left it for the morning and drive it around and took off from a stop and clicking rattle noise disappeared but I got a bad vibration from rear when I accelerate I lifted car and noticed drive shaft had grease all over it where it connects at rear end I would mov drive shaft and it makes a funny noise like it's loose. So I tested car on Jack stands in the air and no vibration I put it down drove it around and vibration dussapeared but click rattle noise came bak drove it for a while and little by little vibration is coming bak , so is this issue I'm having a drive shaft issue , is the grease I found in rear a bad sign .

    It sounds like you at least need a pinion seal (see attached) and possibly some additional fluid in the differential. Taking care of that may, or may not, address the vibration issue.

    Well I don't think it a fluid from the diff it looks like grease the same way like when a cv shaft boot tears that's how it looks and then I grab drive shaft and it sounds loose inside that rear piece that connects to diff that has like a rubber piece that pushes in and out Wat is it made of or Wats inside

    The driveshaft (aka propeller shaft) cv joint is not serviceable the only remedy in the Service Manual for the loss of its lubrication is the replacement of the driveshaft. See attached. There have been some aftermarket attempts to rebuild these diveshafts, but I have not keep current with their progress.
