The very up side of this is ---that when you do finally get all things corrected and repaired ---that will pop up --there will be a very long period of time just enjoying the fruits of your labor and the joy of owning and driving the car
I would do one thing at a time You did the grease in the U joints - so test to see if the problem does not return rather than throwing parts at the problem The grease should tighten up any slack in the U joint caps which might help this
