I had a bad squealing noise start coming from the passenger side rear end last week. After reading many threads, I was able to identify the problem as the half-shaft U-joints. Thanks to all the great posts on here, the identification, removal and repair was smooth and nearly painless.. Other than doing it on the street in 105 degree weather. I learned so much from so many people that i needed to say THANK YOU!!!!!!!

In this case, since you DIY'ed a U-joint in 105° weather on the street, you'd probably like someone to "rain" on your parade.
:chuckle
So...considering the car is 20+ years old and you've had one axle-shaft u-joint fail, you'd better consider doing the other three.
Good luck.
