Gettin old sucks. I'm actually in the same situation Nolan. I started lifting again back at the beginning of the year. Now that the poundages are increasing, I can definitely feel the joints aren't where they were back in the day. I've also got an AC issue, (my collarbone isn't attached to the Acromion) but fortunately it doesn't bother me too much.
Most of the guys I know that are lifting heavy and been doing it awhile swear by the glucosamine and chondroitin stack. I've ordered some up, but like Redduck said, the consensus is that it isn't an immediate improvement thing.
Also make sure you're drinking plenty of water. Even slight dehydration effects how well your joints are lubricated. Most people won't notice slight dehydration either, because symptoms aren't obvious. Easiest way to know is clear pee. If it ain't clear, drink more water.
