The vehicle has to be put on a hoist. turn the driveshaft that goes to the rear wheels,it is driven by a transfer case that is almost in the middle of the vehicle,just rearward of the transmission.
if the noise comes from the transfer case,then that is the problem.
the drive shafts for the rear have universal joints which can develop play and give the same clunk.
if it is the transfer case,it needs to have a gear replaced.
always warm up the vehicle for enough time for the engine to come down to 1000rpm before putting in drive,the fast idle is over 2000rpm,and puts alot of stress on the drive components,and over time wear them prematurely.

I own a Oldsmobile Bravada,94' When i come to a stop and take off it makes a noise like a clink sound.What could it be my friend says it could be the crank shaft,could this be the problem?

A "Clunk" sound would be more appropriate and based on the description you have given of the conditions when it happens I would check the CV joints or U-Joints depending on which you have. This is usually a noise that happens with loose or damaged joints.
