My drivetrain acts (and sounds) like I have a bad U-joint but when I checked it out the noise and slop is inside my T5, before my drive shaft, inside the neck it seems. Is this common? Is this a minor or major fix? Is driving it without fixing it damaging anything else?

Could be the bearing retainer? They came with an aluminum one that tends to wear real badly. Most recommend replacing them with a steel one. Still, this is on the opposite end of the tranny. If it's coming from the tail shaft area, maybe tail shaft bearing? Does it leak from that area?
