Car feels like it jerks and makes a clunk noise at low rpms

I have a 2012 v6 auto and when I slow down I can feel this light jerk and it sounds like something popped out or clunked. It doesn't happen a lot but I don't want it to get worse.

Is this because of the mod on my car,3.73 gears and tune? Appreciate any advice.

To rule out the tune, put the stock tune back in and go for a drive. If the jerking clears up, contact the company that created the tune for you and get a hold of their customer service group.

It could be the rear gear install; who did the installation? Drive shaft reinstall tight? Maybe the driveshaft is loose from the re-installation. Take it back to who ever did the gear install and have them re-check everything.

My car will clunk every once in awhile during rush hour crawling stop and go. I have no tune installed at this time.
I have a 2004 mustang GT auto and it does the same thing every once in awhile. When the RPMs drop from around 3/2 down to 1 it will jerk a little. No gears installed or tune yet.
My 2011 automatic has always gave a little nudge at a few miles per hour when coming to a stop. I thinks it normal, but mine doesn't have any sounds.
Thanks for the advice. I will call the guy who installed the gears. He did a good job but I was concerned about the jerking/nudging.

I was reading that the noise might go away if I buy a new drive shaft. Maybe this will be my excuse to get get one. I didnt think I would need one since Im not a speed demon but they say the ride is smoother.
