Also look at the spring bushings and engine/trans mounts (this includes the bolts). Somethin is moving under a decel load, start tugging an pushing on stuff till you find movement.

I would say that if you checked the u-joints and exhaust, and they are good, then its something in the rear suspension.

Possibly a broken center pin, loose u-bolts, Or even a spring bolt that has rusted to the eyelet will cause a similar noise.

Jack it up from the frame (or set it on jack stands) so that the rear end is hanging, then see what you have play in.

Did you keep your track bars in and use their bracket to make it fit? Those shouldn't even come with the kit since they aren't needed and the track bars are known for causing the noise your describing.

If you are sure it is in the rear then check the diff. Possibly pinion bearing. That can knock. Remove the cover and check asap. If that is the cause and it fails it will be scary.

A sign you are having problems is oil leaking from behind your rear yoke. You can also grab your driveway and pull it side to side to check the play. And of course check your fluid levels
