Clunking noise

I just installed the dpg ultimate lift kit on my tj about 2 weeks ago and I have started to notice a clunking sound when decelerating very hard and also when starting from a stop. Im not sure what the noise is because it will come from the front most of the time but also occasionally i can hear it in the rear. Any suggestions?

There is no easy answer other than crawling under the Jeep and start wiggling exhaust, driveline as well as swaybar and steering parts.

Grab the drive shaft and look for play for the drive shaft and when it's parked oust the wheel to the front and back to look for play
