slight clunk/ shift kit install Q's

Hey, i bought a B&M shift kit today for my TH350. So before i install... i figured i'd go for a test drive to make sure there aren't any problems right now.... So as i'm driving if i press on the gas (lightly) then let off it'll shift and make a slight clunk. So i brought it home jacked it up, U-joints are good, tranny mount is good... but the tail shift and driveshaft have a little up and down play. about 1/8th of an inch.... I think maybe the bearing in the tailshaft is bad, i have noticed a whining noise directly below me while driving(not the rear end). So i didn't install the shift kit because i want this fixed first. Is there a bearing that i can get to by pulling the tailshaft off? Can i do it or does it need to be sent out. And what should i look for when installing this shift kit? Should i have a tranny shop do it? ANy and all advice is welcome. Thanks

ok nevermind. I bought a new tail shaft today with a new bushing and seal. After dropping the pan and finding a lot of metal shavings as well as a few metal chunks... i decided not to install the shift kit. I just serviced the tranny about 6,000 miles ago. I pulled off the tailshaft housing and played with the tailshaft a bit and found that it moves around a bunch... new tranny time !!!!!
