Question 1997 shaking from 10km/h to 40km/h?

Hi:
Driving home from work this morning after pulling away from a stop sign the car started shaking like mad, I stopped, and put it in reverse heard a loud clunk, and it shakes in reverse too. checked for anything obvious ( flat tire, dropped drive shaft, etc) saw nothing so started driving again, the shake goes away once the speed gets above 40km/h. finished the remaining 20km to home, every time the speed is below 40km/h it shakes but is fine over that. Just on my way to check it out better, but was wondering what you guys thought it could be. i am thinking a CV or U joint right now.

This time of year, could be packed snow or ice affecting the driveshaft, axles, or wheels.

Unhappy

Thanks for the quick reply RobLog, but I just came back in from crawling under it and the front U joint is shot , so now the question is can I pull the back 1/2 of the drive shaft, and put the "FWD" fuse in and use the car in FWD mode until the parts come in? Also according to the "Haynes" manual the drive shaft has to go back in the same position as it came out, does this mean that I would have problems using the drive shaft from my 1998 parts car?
