Check these (as comprehensive of a list as I can think of):
1. Axle nut
2. Ball joint
3. Wheel bearings
4. Tie rod ends
5. Lower control arm bushing
Just as an afterthought - check to see that the DOJ roll pin is in place. If it fell out, I imagine that could clunk back and forth on the tranny stub....

I've had the axles out of both of my BRAT's , for various reasons. Upon re-installing them, and torqueing the nut to specs, I've found them to be slightly loose after driving around for a while. Bearing(s) not fully seated in the hub, or the axle not fully in all the way is the only thing I can come up with on that one.
A good indicator of this is, car wants to steer to one side or the other, when you let off the go-pedal.

I TORQUED MY CASTEL NUT DOWN TO 145 LBS AND IT DIDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, TWO DAYS LATER IT WAS BACK TO THE LOUD POUNDING, MAKE ME MADE:madder: NIOSE. WHAT YOU HAD MENTIONED IS JUST WHAT I'M GOING THROUGH TOO. THERE IS ONE WAY TO MAKE IT STOP, REPLACE IT ALL AND DO IT YOUR SELF LES SCHWAB QUOTED ME AT $751.00 FOR FRONT WHEEL BARINGS AND CONSTANT VELOCITY AXLES (CV AXLES) I TOLD THEM TO KISS MY :moon: . SO GOOD LUCK ON IT.
