Differental slop ?

Hi guys, Since starting to drive the Coupe I've noticed some drive line slack i.e. when letting off the throttle there's a clunking and also when applying throttle-clunk. once its engaged its noise free-ish this car is LOUD! Gordon Levy supposedly re built this Diff cause he charged me for parts and labor, the driveshaft is from Denny's and has no slop. Since I'm replacing my clutch fork and T.O. Bearing (see my other post in roadsters) should I have this looked at? this is a quick video I did:
thanks for your comments.

Coupe #641 started 6/19/14. Levy stage 4 347, Super Alloy T5, FAST EFI, IRS, Willwoods, Fast Freddie's EHPS, Custom Carbon dash. More mods to come I'm sure.
MK 3.1 Roadster #4759 completed 2005, 4.6 sohc,Bullits, Willwoods, ABS, Hydroboost, A dream to drive and auto cross !

I have a Tremec 6 speed and I have a lot of driveline lash. Trying to trace it down there is no one big culprit, just every little link ( I have an IRS) from driveshaft to halfshafts just adds up.

MauiKarl thanked this.
