Well it looks like that shop might of messed up the U- joint getting the drive shaft separated. It has a lit of play on one part and it appears the little seal cap was about busted off it. The guy at the shop is probably going to try to act innocent and refuse to do anything about it...

Edit: I'm not sure if they did it or if it happened when I test drove it. I know when I pulled it off the car two of the little rubber O-rings/rubber seals (where it now has a ton of play) had dry rotted and broke then fell off.
