can't figure out what this clunk is?!?!
Where to start... I bought a 96 cherokee about a month ago and I sometimes get this weird clunk that I can seem to figure out what it is. It happens only sometimes when I stop or if I really (goose it) from a slow speed it feels like it comes from the transmission area but the tranny mounts as well as the universal joints are fine. I took it to a very trust worthy mechanic and he put it up and the air and took it for a ride and of course didn't find anything and we couldn't reproduce the sound. The transmission shifts great except for an ocasional ruff shift into second for which I understand is pretty normal. It is an asain warner tranny and I have been told its a great tranny. I have done a little research and a couple people had an issue with the torque converter but to me this doesn't seem like its the problem. If anyone has had a similar experiance or any advice please post. Like I said all the usual suspects were checked out including the driveshaft and everything checks out
Try lubing your driveshaft slip joint.

FYI, I did this on my 88 and 90...and.my clunk(s) went away...I did not know that it was a post 95 thing, but it did the trick anyway, and been fine (great even) ever since.

I had this on my 96 as well and found that my right side motor mount was starting to come apart. Once I replaced that the mysterious clunk went away. My buddy has a 96 as well and his clunk turned out to be nothing more then the nut missing from the evap canister where it attaches to the body which would allow it to bounce around a bit.
