Weird noise...

I was on my way home from the local Ford dealership today with a dual alternator radiator hose when I noticed an odd clinking noise when I'd let completely off the throttle and then get back into it decently.

It would happen for the most part when I was going about 35 or above, around when the torque converter locks in 3rd. It would happen only one time when I'd get on it. I'm having a real hard time telling where it's coming from, as it's relatively quiet (had to turn the radio off to easily hear it). I've had it once make the noise when I put it in gear, have not been able to replicate that, though.

I'm really hoping it's not rear end (really don't want to have a center section grenade...). I'm going to be pulling the fill plug for the rear axle tomorrow to check the level...just b/c it's in the shop for some routine maintenance work. I replaced the cover a couple summers ago, I cleaned the plug of shavings (which is to be expected with over 100k...especially if it had never been touched), hopefully it's not crammed full of metal...

Any ideas?

Check trans output shaft yoke and diff pinion yoke for play. Also check u-joints and slip joint for rotational play.

I was under it yesterday doing the muffler delete, and I smacked the driveshaft a few times by hand, I think it may be in the splines, might be a bit worn after almost 130k.

I think if the rear end was making that kind of noise, I'd be having other issues with it.
