Definitely? What do you use / recommend? Anything besides fish oils?

High doses of EFA's, Glucosamine/MSM/Chondroitin always seem to help out dramatically when I take them consistently. CetylPure is another supplement that people swear by for healthy joint function, but Ive never tried it personally. Cissus Quadrangularis is also supposed to be really good, here's an excerpt from Bobo's write up on the stuff:
I did a CKD diet recently, which help me drop about 2% bodyfat over 6 weeks. While on it, I was ingesting ~220g of fats a day and a good portion of that was from Flax and Fish oil. My joints/tendons felt great the whole time I was on the CKD. Since then, I've been on a more traditional diet and havent been so strict about tracking calories. Sometimes I get my TBSP of fish oil everyday, sometimes I dont, etc. Along with this general 'slacking off' on my diet regimen some minor nagging joint/tendon problems have returned. So Im off to order me up some joint care supplementation!
...However, when it is overactive during periods of elevated cortisol (e.g disease states, stress, and overtraining) excess amounts of normal tissue are broken down as well. By exerting an anabolic, antiglucorticoid effect cissus helps preserve muscle tissue during times of physical and emotional stress.
Although the bulk of the research on Cissus centers around bone healing, the possibility exists that Cissus may act to improve bone healing it may improve the healing rate of connective tissue in general, including tendons. If this is the case it would be of great benefit to bodybuilders and athletes

My ART guy is actually getting to be too small for me. I'm about 5'10", 180 and he's only 5'7" and 155 or so. If and when I grow some more he'll be unable to penetrate the deeper layers of fascia...he said Rolfers should ideally be heavier than the patient.

I have the cracking joints issue as well, it doesn't hurt but I did speak to a highly regarded orthopedic surgeon about it a while ago. His comment was that the reason some peoples joints crack frequently like that is still somewhat of a medical mystery, however no adverse effects have been found to be related to the joint cracking that occurs in the absence of pain, and it was nothing to worry about.
