So this started right after I went trail wheeling a couple weeks ago.
I come to a stop and then clunk, sounds like the rear end catching up with the rest of the truck.
I have checked all shock bolts, all leaf spring ubolts, wheel bolts, play in drive shaft,
The leafs them selves are only a couple years old and the bushings in them are fine.
All check out fine.
Only thing I can see is the rear spring shackle bushings look worn but are still there.
However they are pushed out on one side.
Could this actually be making the clunk?
Any other ideas?

Could be the slip shaft on the driveshaft. Needs lube. Remove it, mark both sides with paint pen or marker before pulling the pieces apart because they need to go back together in exactly the same way. Lube the male and female ends and reassemble.
