Knock and noise...with vid I think

I finished my 4 link front and rear, with coilovers, took her for a bit of a drive yesterday, mounted the gopro on the transmission crossmember and filmed back.

I could feel a vibration in the floor boards, and then when I watched the video, I could hear the noise.

Any ideas? Is it the carrier bearing need to be lowered some more? The angle of the joints in the drive shaft???

Thanks for any help... Oh firts time utilizing gopro or youtube so hope it works:

What conditions are the u-joints and carrier bearing in? Did you remove the driveshaft at any point, and possibly not put it back together in the same orientation?

I didn't remove the drive shaft. The carrier bearing has about 1/2 play in the rubber part. No idea about the joints. Going to see about replacing everything tomorrow...

If the carrier bearing has play, that's your problem.

Pinion angle was really off. Need to shorten my upper 4 link arms... They are already max shortened now.
