Clunk on acceleration after stop...

I have 1993 Ranger 4X4 with 4.0L engine and 161K miles.
Can anyone tell me what might cause a clunk in the driveline or chasis, whenever I start accelerating from a dead stop? It almost feels like something is shifting back into position from the braking.
I have a similar condition (not as noticeable) on my 1999 f150 4X4 with 130K miles...
Thanks for any response. Jim

When setting still, try putting it in reverse then drive and back a few times. It may be a u-joint but further checking to be sure.

U-joint? Excessive clearance in the diff? Brake pads that are too small and are moving in the bracket?
