Start by checking everything that you have undone tomget the diff out and back in.

The thing about drive train noise is the first test drive shows up all the things that you previously ignored or hadnt noticed!

I had changed my front dampers and fitted some poly bushes and ball joints, So I drove about 8 miles to a garage to get the tracking done there was no knock then but it started on the way back, never heard it before. It is fairly loud. Will do as you suggest and check every nut again

Maybe worn prop UJ is causing the clunk, and more obviously did you put back in the spacer that goes on the input shaft inside the nose cone in front of the VC ?, if you missed this out then VC is floating on the input shaft and will clonk back and fro

spacer

Also having had it checked out I probably put more acceleration and power through it on the way home

Yes I put the spacer in because it took me a while to line it up

Probably solved one of the plastic spacers was not fully engaged. It look flat from the angle I tightened it from but when I span it without holding the top nut there was an audible click.
Thanks for your replies and help
