Default Clunking noise in 4wd HELP!!

ok so in my 01 ram 1500 with a 5 inch lift i am having a real nasty clunking noise come from under the driver and passenger seats. i have a buddy who has been doing truck mods for over 30 years helping me out and we are both a little lost. we recently replaced all the front U-joints and the CV joint.. the noise only comes in 4wd while i was on sand and gets louder on turns which i assume because it adds pressure when you turn. our next option is we are taking out the driveshaft and having a driveshaft guy grind down the cv joint a little to add room..they both think that the angle may be causing the noise since the rough country lift i have didnt come with any tranny mounts or any way to lower tranfer case or tranny. any other ideas out there.....thanks for any help

Yea everything was installed correctly it does sound like u joints but they are all new and everything is correct. The shaft had an upward angle toward the rear of truck. There was nothing installed to lower transfer case or a tranny mount

How did the old u joints get removed and how were the new ones installed???
Did you heat and beat or use a press??? the drive shaft could be out of round or bent or one of yokes could be.... some of the dodges had and have aluminum driveshafts not sure of your model and you can really f them up if you dont watch it ... anyways might be some things to check
