get some help from a good friend allow them to engage the transmission from N to D with all brakes on! in and out till you can locate the sound.
could be many things ..
idling high making the vehicle snap the transmission into ratios to fast. another could be uni type joints worn and causing lash at the differential. listen a little closer and keep your eyes open....
whilst the car is stationary, turned off with park brake engaged try and rotate the tail shaft closest to the diff, back and forth solidly( by Hand)
if there is excessive play or those clunking sounds can be heard its one of many things that needs to be repaired asap
only guessing but tail shaft uni joint.
ANY VIBRATIONS AT CRUISING SPEEDS????????
