Probably drive line slack.
Check the U-joints and the slip joint that slides in the transmission. If those are ok, then you may have a lot of slack in the ring and pinion gears.

I have changed the driveshaft with a new ford racing one. That helped a lil bit but there's still that clunk from the right side. When had the driveshaft off I was spinning flange on the rear end. There's was a lot of play in it but how do I check it to see where it should be.

My money is on bad U-joints

Does it do from a stop where you hold the brake, put it into gear and hear/feel the transmission go into the gear? If so, I'm almost 100% positive it's Ujoints... You should be able to get up under there and try and turn the driveshaft. If it moves at all, then it is the u joints.

Hope this helps

You will have to drain the rear end and pull the cover to check the backlash, better left to someone with experience/proper tools if you have none in that area. In and out axle play is normal because they are c-clip axles.

Took the rear end cover off 2 nights ago and found all the spider gears were chipped and worn out so that's why it was clunk
