Click when shifting into park

A lot of the time these days when I shift into park from drive, sometimes reverse, I will hear this "click" immediately after shifting. I heard this a few weeks ago and found one of my U Joint strap bolts snapped. Got that taken care of and now this click is back. I checked all the other bolts and everything is good. any ideas what the problem is or are there any checks I can do to try and narrow it down?

It may be a hairline crack in the drive shaft itself.

Have you checked your front flange bolts?

See this:


I found the bolt missing from the bottom hole on my driveway. Ended up putting Lock-Tite them and re-torqueing them.

I suggest, at least, looking at them to see if the two surfaces are slipping.

Checked out the bolts they're good and I can't find any cracks that I can see

That broken U-Joint bilt could have allowed the U-joint to have some play in it and caused the needle bearings inside the U-Joint to fail. I would start with new u-joints as they are fairly easy to change and somewhat cheap. As compared to a new driveshaft or something...

I did that u joint when I was extracting the snapped bolt. Could it have affected the other u joints? I can't feel any vibrations while driving
