2006 E350 4matic, Drive Shaft clunking noise

I have a 2006 E350 4 matic with 45K miles on it,just recently i noticed a clunk noise when i pulled away from a standing stop, usually at a stop light, it seems to be getting worse in a very short time span, i have read about the problems with flex disc's,but this sounds more solid that a rubber joint, anyone have ideas, there is no vibration while at normal speeds nor when slowing down.

OK, have had a look underneath, all Felx disc,s are fine, thre seems to be a lot of play in the drive train as a whole, theres no play in any of the forward prop shaft to the front diff, no oil leeks at any of the shaft outputs, no bad engine mounts or suspension arms etc. just a fair amount of play in the drive train as a whole, ???? maybe its the transfer case, any ideas.
