244 Whacking sound on engine braking 200 1989

Good day!

This is my first post on this forum, so please forgive me if it is in the wrong spot.

I have an '89 244 with an M47 transmission which makes a sound of metal hitting metal on engine braking. It only does this on engine braking, and any throttle eliminates it.

I've just replaced the Carrier bearing and bushing and checked all of the driveline U-joints, and they seem fine and the carrier bearing bushing made no difference. I have new engine mounts that I'm going to install to see if that fixes it.

I have a video of it, if that is helpful:

Any ideas are greatly appreciated, Thanks!
