I replaced the front drive shaft Ujoints that were questionable thinking thats what was causing the clunking no luck there.
Could somebody please help, I'm not sure what to check or try next.
As far as the accelerating, I'd suspect the double cardan joint in the front shaft. Even if you replaced the u-joints, the ball and socket could be bad.
