Sorry dude. I have found the same thing with U-joints in the BMW world (i.e. people don't replace them.) I don't see why they shouldn't, I've done it in my truck and in several other cars.... It's unclear if you have replaced the guibo or not. If you have, then that should help you out quite a bit. When you are under your car, and you have the car in gear (4 wheels off the deck preferably) you should reach up and try to twist the driveshaft. There will be a little play, but not more than say an 1/8 of an inch (if that). Otherwise, there might be some problems in your rear end.
... and I'm not exactly sure what "engagement feel" is. You might have a slipping clutch.
