2005 Jeep Liberty Sport Rear end noises

Looking for some advice-
I have 50K miles on 3.7 4x4-
Every morning when cold, I get a clunk,clunk,clunk from the read of the jeep that changes with speed .
It sounds like a universal joint but-
When I go straight - no noise,
Then I turn right- clunk, clunk, clunk- speed sensitive.
Then I go straight again for 100 ft. Then the noise goes away.
I can drive all day without any noises.
But then the next day in the morning- clunk , clunk, clunk.
Any advice where to look? Thanks, Jeff

Shocks, u-joints, rear lower track bars/control arms, axle shafts, etc.

Thanks-

Do you think it could be the differential? Since it stops making the noise after the fluid has circulated. All Items you mentioned look good.
Thanks, Jeff

How sure are you that it is coming from the rear? Have you checked your drive shafts? CV axles?
