Thump in snow

this only happens when it is snowing out. doesn't matter if im on dry pavement or on packed snow. i had play in the u joints so they are all new spicers. apparently that's not the issue. its more of a buck and thump and i can really feel it in the rear end and in the engine area. I am stumped and don't wanna take it to the stealer-ship

Does it happen when you're 4wd? I think I have play in my U-joints too, whenever i take off or come to a stop i hear something "shift", its a visible clunk.

Are you loosing traction any?

I know you said it also happens on dry pavement, but you also said it happens when it is snowing.

You could be loosing traction, then catching grip. That happened to me the other day.

What kind of spicers? Do you have the bass turned down, it may help a little?
