Drive shaft clunk?

Truck makes noticable clunking noise when coming to a stop and sometimes when accelerating. Dealership said it is normal. I saw a previous post about drive shaft slip yoke. I'm just about to hit 36k miles and would like to have it repaired (if it needs to be repaired) before warranty expires. Any one know if this is normal?

Thanks for all of the info. I'll see if the dealership will do it. If not, looks pretty straight forward. Other than this small annoyance, truck is perfect.

Every Ford truck I have had since 1997 has done this. My 97 F150 did it and my F250 HD does it. They greased the slip yoke and it goes away for a while, but then it comes back. Apparently there used to be ("in the old days") a zirk on the yoke they could grease it, but now they done't. Last time, years ago, I asked about it they were going to charge me around $125 to grease the yoke....I live with the clunk; my buddy's Dodge 1500 does the same thing.
