Probably - but you will have to tell us much more about this problem before we can give you any definite answer .

As a general rule, anything that affects stiffness will change the natural frequency.

You say "rigidly fixed" which implies no gross motion, but you also speak of a universal joint which suggests large rotational motions. This is all pretty confusing, so a picture is essential here.
