Get it up on the rack and rock the wheels back and forth with it in gear and figure it out.
Can't tell anything from a vid this will take hands on involvement.

That depends on if he put his post in the correct section. On a 2004-2006 GTO the stock drive shaft has guibos on the ends and not universal joints. It does have some at the center carrier bearing but then it needs a new drive shaft.

Maybe that mechanic has a normal clunking......that he hears...

that sure sounded like something was loose, ......svede was on it

Might want to check another shop.....driveline specialist

Shop can put a chassis ear on it to isolate it. It sticks on with a magnet or tie and transmits to the tech as he rides along with you driving....

He then pinpoints the clunking......normal or abnormal...as it were

Do you feel it in the floor? Mine makes clunking too. 182k miles on it. I feel it in the floor when I take off from a stop. Have to reduce throttle until it accelerates enough to stop banging. Does not do it when cruising. The center carrier bearing on the drive shaft I know is shot. No more rubber in it. Don't know about the guibos. Plan to get under the car soon and scope it out.
