I have this loud thud every time I start accelerating fast, it kind of sounds like something is shifting around my axles. I am thinking it might be my u-joints but I haven't really put any effort in finding what it could be. If any body has this problem or knows any information, please help I want to get rid of this problem.

Thanks

I think your on the right track. Check those u-joints for wear. Also it could be the slip yoke on the driveshaft. If it doesn't have enough grease or it has grooves worn into the splines, it will stick and when you accelerate it will slip abruptly causing a thump that reverberates through the hollow driveshaft.
