is this engagement normal?

hey guys i am new to diesels, and about 1k miles into my new to me 05 psd. My question is when i take off from a stop at times, I can feel the rear engage somewhat clunky. Its not real harsh, but I can feel it. Is this normal? it only happens every so often when im light on throttle taking off normally. any input would greatly be appreciated.

it might need the slip yoke greased its a very common problem. just slide it out and grease it. i drilled and tapped mine for a grease fitting ans all has been great since.
