#1

When stopped and accelerating normally I hear an audible clunk, but feel nothing. If I gently accelerate from stop it does not occur.


#2

Have the universal joints on the driveshaft checked. Also, have the CV joint up front checked as well. If you want to do it, You could raise a wheel off the ground, and rotate it back and forth, looking for a gape in motion due to a loose joint. That’s the joint that should be replaced.
