neede help with clunking....

im in the process of finishing up my cj7 build and i have just a couple things to fix. the motor was completely gone through i have brand new springs and shocks but i did not do anything internal to either axle (have no front drive shaft installed) or the transfer cue or transmission. when i drive it down there road there is no problem except for when i shift, give gas from nothing or release gas all together i get a nasty *CLUNK*........ i put 6 degree shims under the rear axle thinking that would fix it but no luck. i think its in the transfer case just because it does it when i shift into every gear. any other ideas? I'm supposed to be going on a short road trip this week and even though its drivable i would feel more comfortable if the was no clunk
thanks in advance

Jeeps and girls are alot alike, both get mad when you call them the "c word", both like to be rode hard, both of them are hard to control... Hell, the only difference between them is you can only fix one with a hammer.

A blown u-joint can sound like that. You need the wheels blocked and to be in neutral to check them.
