Default Are my half shafts fubarred?

Every time I get going, there's a "clang" from the diff. My mechanic dove under the car and declared that my half shafts are going. Too much play.
Is he right? Is it possible for the half shafts to take a dive? Or is it my Torsen that's going?

Thanks!

will your mechanic pay for the half-shafts if he's wrong?

So this clunk only happens once, when you first start rolling?

Correct. It only clangs after a stop.
