Clunking noise in front drive on my 2001 350 fourtrax

I just got this one and it has a serious hard clunk in the front, seems to be in the differential like a tooth is missing but I pulled the plug and looked in the diff while turning it by hand and all the teeth I can see look good. Any ideas?

No not in same spot doesn't seem to be axle related note like a tooth from a gear floating around somewhere and getting caught once in a while.
Doesn't matter if I'm goin straight or turning, accelerating or decelerating or if I'm just holding speed. It's loud and harsh can feel it in the handlebars like a tooth in the differential just got forced between the housing and the gear I still see no damage to any gear that I can see.
Oh and it turns out to be a 1998 trx300fw if that helps anyone.
It does not do it if I've got it jacked up of the ground no matter what I do.
