Rear end help!

As of yesterday my reared started making a really loud clunking noise when I'm taking off an it seems to mainly be when at lower RPMS (could just be a coincidence) but it's extremely loud and makes a very noticeable jerk as well when it does it. It will continue to do it as I go through the gears but less and less as I get into the higher gears. I have no knowledge of rear ends so I'm completely clueless as to what it could be. Any and every advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

Could be the differential going out or could be a control arm. Is it all stock or are there aftermarket parts back there?

I discovered it was my gears, somehow the smaller ones got destroyed and were missing huge chunks. I'm in the process of replacing them right now.

Good deal. Make sure you use only Ford Racing gears. I've never ever heard of that happening tho... weird.

I think that he is referring to the spider gears. It is a very common thing for them to wear out and break in four wheel drives with large tires. Not so common in cars, though.

That's what I've been told. Someone said it could be caused from dumping the clutch but I've never dumped the clutch once, I'm not sure what caused it.

No comment... but yes... could be from a previous owner.

I also know the clutches on the inside (not sure the proper term) were wearing out and were basically shot when I replaced them yesterday. Not sure if that could've caused it??
