I did my arms all in nolothane as well and it is quieter.. However the clunking is more to do with the uni joint between driveshaft and diff I believe. I will be replacing it soon to see if it will recify this problem.

diffs f**k, mine does it something fierce at the moment, all my bushes are ok, new shocks/springs, new swaybar bushes, etc.
the diff might actually be ok in yours, but might have alot of play.
my diff is rooted, and it does it real bad when colder.
