Rear End Clunk...Differential Or Bushing?
I've acquired a new clunk that I've been hunting down for almost a month now. It happens when I come to a complete stop and accelerate from a stop. It sounds metallic and is pretty loud. I've replaced the rear u-joints, rear sway bar bushings, rear sway bar links, lower control arm bushings, rear shocks and rear pads. I also greased the slip joint and changed the differential fluid.
The Jeep has 199,600 miles on it so I'm concerned that the noise may be the differential bearings or spider gears going bad. I know the "rear end clunk" threads are cliche but other than this problem my Jeep runs and drives excellent.
Basically I'm asking whether or not track bar bushings or upper control arm bushings would make that significant of a noise. Because those are the only things I haven't replaced. It's not super loud but I can feel it in the floorboards every time it happens.
