Sound like a bad u-joint?

Every time I shift into gear I'm hearing this annoying clunk which sounds to be directly under my shifter. I can even feel the vibrations in the shifter. I will also get the same nose when giving the car power. The noise is loudest in 1st and 2nd. I'm changing my tob clutch fork and pivot ball this weekend and thinking about the u joints as well since the drive shaft will be out. The noise shouldn't be the transmission mount since that is 1 week old...

Its possible. Take a look at the caps while you have the shaft out.

I would replace both u-joints as it sounds like it is a bad one on the front of the driveshaft. I always recommend replacing all u-joints as they each have equal wear on them unless someone else changed one out before you bought it.
