Not sure if it's a problem or not

Hey everyone.
I'll be driving along and come to a stop and when I take off I could feel and hear a clunk under my feet. Or if I start messing with the throttle by tapping the pedal so the rpm jumps up and down slightly I get the same noise. I checked everything out and it seems ok.
Most of my front end has been replaced in the past year but I do know my driver's side spindle is worn and will need replacing soon.
Could also by the driveshaft, but it's coming from under my feet, more under my left foot.
I don't know, i just wanted to see if anyone else ever had the same experience.

Broken / weak rear leaf spring causing the axle to 'wrap' and binding the driveshaft ?

Are you freakin serious? I have a post in the suspension forum about my rear leaf. Check it out and let me know if this could be my problem. I can't believe the coincidence.
