Icon5 Coasting Rattle

I have recently noticed that when I am coasting in gear w/o having the clutch pushed in I get a soft rattling sound kind of like when upshifting too soon. Pushing in the clutch makes the noise go away. It happens a lot when coasting downhill and does not seem to matter as to whether it is higher or low RPM. I changed the transmission fluid about a month ago (1500miles or so ago) and was told when bought the truck that the clutch was new last year. Is the rattle an expected behavior of these?

1993 Ranger 2.3l, 5spd, 202k miles.

Sounds likea U-joint in your drive shaft is going bad. get under your truck and push your drive shaft strait up and down. it should have very little play normally.
