engine idle is too high over 800 r.p.m. no doubt . if not, then the motor mounts may be shot, but then it would jump any time you gassed it quickley

X2 with engine idle to high. It also, Sounds to me like the rear brake shoes need to be set up to the drums properly, if it clunks then you may also need to change the U-joint as well.
