Unhappy Serious Drivetrain Clunk

My 87 560SL has had a serious clunk in the drivetrain whenever I shift from neutral to drive or reverse. Nothing happens for about a second, then it bangs hard. Also, when the transmission downshifts as the car is slowing down, I get the same delay and clunk when I step on the gas. There is no driveshaft vibration or any other symptoms that I'm aware of.
Anybody run into this before?

1986 560SEC: 150,000 miles, runs great, but I've got to sell it (too many cars for one man)
1987 560SL: 122,000 miles, used to run poorly, now (thanks to forum), runs great!
1997 GMC Jimmy: Turned out to be a turkey.
1989 T-Bird Super Coupe: 150,000 miles, still runs great. Ford got it right.
