Default Drivetrain click diagnosis

My '05 Bonneville GXP has developed a double click when slowing down.

It doesn't seem to be afftected by how hard the brakes are applied, and only a slight change to the clicks if I am turning to the right.

Every time I stop, as a slow past 15-13 mph, I get two short clicks, (the first slightly louder than the second) from the drivers front area.

To get an idea of the sound, picture 2 1/8" or 1/16" pieces of steel about 1" x 4" laying in the street about a foot, foot and a half apart. Drive over them every time you're slowing.

That is what it sounds like.

The only way I don't get the click is to knock the tranny into neutral before I've slowed to the point that it would normally be heard, or if I let the car slow itself to a stop (while still in gear) it will not do it then either.

The only change I can seem to get in the clicks, is if I am turning to the right while stopping, I will get three clicks instead of two. Turning left or straight, it is the same.

I keep thinking CV, but I've never heard one do something like this before.

Any suggestions, ideas, thoughts?
