A sloppy u joint may free up a fraction of a horsepower at the rear wheels if the driveshaft is spinning eccentric to center.
I've also seen frozen universal joints cause a shakey dyno number vs a smooth one.
Reason is it takes power to bend the joint back and forth but again, minor and the more driveshaft angle the more it would be a problem.
