    It could be something simple like a U joint. Even if the joint is not loose, a lack of lubrication inside the joint can cause some nasty noises. The U joint is usually a sealed part from the factory and cannot be lubed. Removal of the driveshaft and inspection of the U joint can usually determine if the joint is bad.
