i had new tires put on last summer, i had to replace the universial joints upper and lower on both sides after i got it last year could it be that the hubs are bad or could it be something wrong with the 4wd?

I would poke around online first, see what kind of prices you find. Look at summit and 4wp and sites like that, could check http://www.ttperformanceinc.com/store/ or Nick Ramon ( he is a big part of TT ) he might be able to order you the rebuild kit for a good price.
