Only when you're moving, right? I mean egine at idle is okay?
Could be the universals to the drive shafts.
Look underneath - there are rubber "bellows" on the drive shafts - if they are torn, dirt gets in can that could be your problem.

I agree with QuicksilverDon. The "bellows" or Boots (#3 and #6) can tear and let dirt and debris inside.

Here's the half shafts...

Another guess might be one of the outer bearings but usually that's more of a grinding noise especially when your turning.
