i know we all have it, we shift from park into reverse or drive and hear the tranny clunk.. i am also one of the lucky peeps to have something clunk when i first take off for the day..
yesterday, however was unique. it clunked not once, but 3 times......... i gunned it a bit around the corner cuz i felt like it and when it shifted into second.. i heard a clunk... it did it again about 10min later, i was crossing the main road, has a little 25-30deg hill, then goes down at about 35deg into a turn.. as i just cleared the top it went into second and clunked again.
i keep pushing the date to do the jmod and get me irs bushings put on and new u-joints, cuz i may be getting $2500-3500, and that would mean... FRPP rear and MMX driveshaft.. so it would be like.. fully refreshed driveline..
Is it the u-joints clunking or something internal in the tranny? btw, i am firmly convinced at least 1 of the 1-2 springs are broken.. it doesn't shift superfirm (no kit), but it will go a lot quicker than say, the 3-4...
I have the EXACT problem, but it's most noticeable on the first 3-4 shift of the day(sometimes 2-3 too), and when it's cold. As I am having the clunk when shifting from P to R or D, and have a drive line vibe, I'm pretty sure that it's my worn out IRS bushings(they are flaking and have vertical play, already had them inspected) AND the u-joints.
Does your also clunk when leting off the gas(with lerch), and again when stepping on the gas, with a little delay in acceleration+clunk? mine does that and most people think it's a sign that it's the u-joints.
