Hi Bill,

Does the sound still come from the tranny?
If so - see earlier messages about this - check the tranny mounting rubbers.
These rubbers are ineffective due to leaking oil making these worthless.

Another possibility is play in the U-joints. Easy to check when you are
under the car.

If the sound comes from the rear it looks like the differential gear.
