RWD? Could be a worn Universal Joint. There are infact number of causes for this. The U-joints are the most common cause but can easily identified by visual inspection and feeling for lash in the drive shaft. The next cause down the list is the rear diffirential as the gears ware down the lash will incresse causeing sudden "clank" or "clunk" sound as the car goes from neutrual/park to reverse/drive. Next potential cause is transmission related. Uncommon causes can be a warped or worn out suspention, causeing excessive driveshaft angles.
