How do you determine if the u-joints are bad?
The previous owner says the u-joints were replaced last year, but maybe the mechanic took her for a ride.

edit: this was supposed to go in my other topic about driveline problems but if you can answer it please do. Its for a 91 Spider

Grab the two sides of the u-joint and twist and pull. you should feel NO movement. If any play at all, replace it.

In addition, if the joint is difficult to pivot or it squeaks when turning, replace it.
