Prop shaft

Did they say if it was the support bearing or the universal joint bearings. I think the support bearings would possibly have more of a growl/grind kind of noise and the uj bearings would have a clonk when starting to turn or take up the drive.
Try turning by hand and you will easily tell, there should be no movement at the uj /spider bearing but if it is the support bearing there will be a bit of axial movement which will not show up on the uj.
