clunk noise wtf?!?!

so ive been reading as many threads as i can find to find a answer, but with no success....
i have a 2000 tj 4.0 manual w/ 120k miles, and im getting a large clunk noise (it sounds like a grinding, stress buildup, then CLUNK!) i can feel it in the jeep a little. it only happens when making slow tight turns in forward and reverse..... now i would assume its part of the steering or suspension.... however (and heres the kicker) it only does it when in gear and on the throttle.... if the clutch is in / no noise.

now im planing on replacing the rear differential grease this weekend. and when the covers off ill check the gears, but untill then.....

anybody got any ideas??????????????????????????????????
