Hard thud while accelerating decelerating at speed

I have a 90 ford bronco 5.0L and when ever I accelarate / decelerate at speeds above 30 mph I hear and feel a thud from the floor board I've changed out the rear u joint. The u joints look fine but I can't seem to get rid of this thud on when I speed up other slow down. The engine and transmission mounts look fine from what I can tell any other ideas?

Slip joint grease

It looked pretty well greased I didn't add any to it though.

A pinion bearing going out will give these same symptoms.

the issue with the 8.8 is you cant really snug the pinion down if it is loose. you will need a new crush sleeve and apply the proper torque if that is whats occuring.

I have similar issues but at lower speeds, the transmission guy I go to says my mount is bad and causing the tranny to move and thunk.

More troubles

Thanks i'll take a look at those. But I have a new problem developing. I'm hearing a clicking from the front wheel well and it goes away when braking. I took the passenger side tire off to spin the hub to try and isolated the problem and found that when I spin the hub gets tight and hard to spin when I take the caliper off the hub spins freely no problem so what is causing the clicking? Is it the brakes or something else?

the clicking could be a number of things. Bearings, the brake pad tattle tails, could also be a tire weight mounted to the inside of the wheel that is hitting the caliper/brake pad pins. my wheels do this due to the weights being mounted there.
