Clunking noise coming from drivetrain?

I can hear a clunking noise when I drive off from a stop and it sounds like a rotational clunking getting faster the faster I go. Then it kind of goes away and then comes back. Then I get a squeal from the rear that won't go away. Also when I let off the gas while in gear and the RPMs drop I hear this grinding/clunking noise making me think it's about the gears in my rear end.

My rear end is on it's last leg already and have a new D44 on the way soon. But I'm not sure if it's the rear end that is making the noise or the somewhere else in the drivetrain.

Don't know if anyone knows what this could be caused by but hopefully someone can figure it out or at least help.
I'm hoping that it's my rear end since its already being replaced.

Ok that's what I figured since I already knew that my R&P is shot and making a noise when I'm on the gas and stops when I coast. And that might have triggered something else to go.
Thanks for the help!
