Hey sorry for being so long replying.
I ended up getting my CRV towed to a garage. The wheather was just too bad to do anything anyways. The U joint let go at the front end of the shaft. However I then found out Honda requires an entire drive shaft to replace on the CRV. (something like 7-800 to buy) The mechanic had the parts made and it works fine now. Much better price!!!!!
I found the replacement U joints for it just afterwards. I think it was called Rockford or something in the States. They were very helpfull but I had the parts fixed by then.
Now I have to turn to a few new issues. Strong smell coming from the engine while driving. It smells like burnt oil. It's been getting worse over last number of weeks. I'm not sure where it's coming from but maybe there's a leak onto the exhaust.
