Rear end torque, thump.

My issue has been persistent since I bought the car, diff bushings changed , subframe reinforced.

If I don't do a smooth clutch release or clutch depress , I will get a thump,thud.

I have taken videos while releasing the clutch and thumping the diff, each video was taken on separate mounting points and overall diff views

An odd point to add - the thump isn't apparent underneath the vehicle in the back . It's loud and distinct while sitting in the cabin , but theres no such noise underneath, only the click off the half shafts.
There is complete movement happening on my whole rear end. Exhaust , shocks and springs will compress a good inch , but there differential is solid in place.
This problem has just been such a nuisance

Maybe it's spring shock related? What about tranny mounts?
