[DML] Clunk, clunk, clunk

Hi yall, been awhile since I've posted on here.  Just been reading...  Now I have a question that I hope/know somebody will have a good answer for.

I have a five speed manual tranny. vin #2034

I was wondering what symptoms would arise from removing and replaceing the differential adjustment nut on the transmission?  I think I might have put it back on to tight regardless of measures I took to put it back on  the same number of turns it took to get off...  I really screwed this up I think.  Is there a way of determining the correct adjustment, or will I just have to adjust with the 'trail and error' method?  I might have waited to late to make adjustments because I noticed a 'luncking'  noise when I would 'coast' down the road.  The sound is'nt there when accelerating or braking, just coasting or rolling slow.

I've already been under the car, checked all bolts (tight), bell houseing bolts (tight), brakes (tight), muffeler (tight), nothing appears out of the ordinary.  The transmission shifts fine in all phases of driving, fluids are topped off.  Might it be the grease has seeped out of one of the axle boots and the clunking is coming from one of the CV joints (is that the correct term? CV joint?)?  

Could somebody drop me a line if you have time and might know where to start looking or adjusting?

Thank you.\
