Clunk Clunk, nice...

I've got a lovely clunk noise coming from what sounds to be the diff when i shift from 1st to 2nd, and 2nd to 3rd, best way to describe it is that it sounds like there is like a bowling ball in the trunk bouncing around. Don't know how much it really affects driving, just a piss off.
Hey, any suggestions?

Either diff bushings or subframe crack. Hope to god that it is dif bushings because those are WAY cheaper to replace than getting your subframe fixed/re enforced.
