Universal joint

I have a 85 s10 2.8 4wheel drive and i think the universal is going bad. When I start out after firing the truck up I hear a click. What can I do to troubleshoot this and is this a hard fix? Thanks

A universal joint will be more like a metalic ding as the driveshaft is hollow. Chock the front wheels, put the rear in the air and take it out of gear. Crawl underneath and wiggle the driveshaft at both ends. If you can see movement in the universal it is time to replace, if not, you will have to look elsewhere.
Hope this helps ya,
