    Sounds like U-join to me as well. I don't see it being the spider gears. I'd go with the U-join they are pretty cheap.

    The slip yoke doesnt go bad, just makes noise. You can take the driveshaft off and pack it full of grease to cure the problem for a while. But most likely u joints. Possibly spider gears considering your tires.
