sye kits and driveshaft

hi, i have a 97 tj with stock underbelly. i have what seems like a clunking, more felt than heard, when i hit potholes or go over speed bumps or similar things. it happens even at low speeds and sometimes with very small bumps. it feels like it is right under my feet. i am wondering if this is a driveshaft issue? would a sye possibly cure this? or a new front driveshaft?
also tis may be a different topic, but when i am at a stop light i feel a similar vibration that i think might have something to do with the exhaust. is that a possibility?
any insight or ideas would be great. thanks

Yeah, that can make the T-Case linkage knock under your feet.

But the OP has solved this problem...
