yea, it was the u-joint

but the guy who did it for me said I would need a new clutch in a few months.... at 78000 miles is that about right??

Also is it really about 600 bills to have a mechanic do it?

At that mileage it is possible to need a new clutch. That sounds about right for the price if it is just labor ( $75 hr x 8hr) I don't know if it takes that long. If that is parts and labor, that is a good price also.
