the clink starts after you get to 30mph if you let your foot off the gass and you hear a quick clunk like a shot drive axel but going strait. This clunk only goes away: A) when the engine has some strain.
B) when the brakes have some strain

Check the inner cv joint, if worn it will cuase these symtoms.

Could be one of the replacement axles is no good, the clunk is due to slack in a plunger joint, that's the inner joint!
