slop in gear

It feels like either my transfer case has slop in it or my diff. Its got a new driveline so i know it can't be that. But it'll do this thing where if its at just the right speed and just a teeny tiny bit of gas and its like it's clanking back and forth between teeth. That's not the greatest description of it, but its just like if your riding a motorcycle and you've got the slack in the chain that is taken up when you accelerate or decelerate.
FYI...this is a ZF6 transmission. Any thoughts? Could it just be due to having lift blocks? backlash on rear end needing adjustment?
