I replaced a ton of stuff. Giubo, center support bearing, transmission mounts, engine mounts, roll/sway bar bushings, subframe bushings, differential bushing, trailing arms, yet I am still getting a clunking sound while shifting gears unless I rev match perfectly.

I noticed after I reinstalled the drive shaft (yes I marked it so it would still be in balance) that I could push on the drive shaft and hear/feel a slight bump, however the drive shaft appeared to have no play or just enough play that I could not visibly notice it but could feel it.

Could this be the centering bushing in the drive shaft? I Didn't know there was one (first time working on a RWD car) inside of the drive shafts but it looked like it was intact and fine.

@Lee is that the same for the ///M as well? Then the pre load has to be reset correctly as your changing the hard part.
