Triumph TR6 - Rear axle universal joint

Anyone's experience/nightmares with replacing universal joints in the rear would be appreciated. I just noticed the loud CLUNK the other day and my preliminary diagnosis is the univ. joint. Appears the entire axle needs to come off. Right?

The loud clunk..is it heard when engaging clutch in reverse and/or start off in first? This is more likely to be the diff mounting bolt(s) and most likely to be the front right one. A UJ is more likely to give you a clicking sound. Lift the rear off the ground and turn each wheel at a time to see what u hear. There have been many conversations in the ARCHIVES re rear end "funny" noises.
