Check your exhaust. Esp, the area next to your rear diff. Check the play of the muffler, swing it side to side.

Please describe the clutch "clunking" when does it happen?

Why not get under there and wiggle everything around and see if any of the mounts are way loose?

Beyond that I have found the source of some wierd sounds by having someone get in the car and simulate the conditions that I was hearing the sound. Letting the clutch out quickly and the like. Be VERY, VERY careful when doing this. Don't put yourself in a position that you could be run over, put the ebrake on hard, and have them press very firmly on the brake when letting the clutch out.

In particular I discovered that by jacking the car up on the side rear diff mounts I ended up bending the plate a little. When the clutch was let out quickly in reverse the cross-bar attached to the diff ended up hitting this mounting plate making a metal on metal noise that was pretty loud.
