    Pop the driveshaft out and throw some grease down the shaft that goes to the transfer case. Sometimes that is the culprit.

    Like Bubba said, chances are the clunk is coming from your slip joint.

    You should also check out all the crossmembers underneath the truck. If one is loose it will allow the drivetrain to shift around.......

    If nunna that stuff works check the spring perch where the spring pack bolt fits in. My blazer had the same problem as you. It turned out the hole in the spring perch elongated by an inch and the bolt was running back and forth. The only way to fix it was slap in a 14 boltff /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    U-joints checked out OK, slip yoke is OK, gears in diff... BAD. Is anyone selling a good 10 or 12 bolt rear cheap??? I'm only running 32's for now so I don't need a 14 bolt (yet). /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    How can I check for that without taking the cover off? Or am I just going to have to tear the thing apart and check the teeth?
