I hear a clunking coming from the rear of the vehicle.
Hi, when does this occur? There could be multiple things involved. If it happens when you shift from reverse to drive or vice versa, the gearing in your rear differential may be misaligned creating a larger than normal gap between the teeth of the gears. When the driveshaft switches direction the teeth will clink together as they come in contact. If this occurs while driving, or when taking off from a stop, there is most likely something with the suspension. Please take care driving the car as you could severely damage other components if driven too hard. Have a certified technician help you inspect the vehicle to assess where the source of the noise is.
