Just speculating - perhaps the flex disks, perhaps the differential mounts - perhaps the differential itself is worn.

Do you have "slack" in the driveline under conditions of accelerating and then letting off the gas - or vice versa?

How long has it been since the differential oil was checked and/or changed? I'm a large advocate of differential care, having seen one worn out completely from harsh conditions and lack of maintenance (previous owner).
