Clunking coming from rear..

I was taking off from a stop sign pretty fast and i heard a clunk clunk....now it does it whenever i get on the gas...more when i am turning but will do it when i am going straight. Could it be the trasfercase or axle?? I have a D35...its a pretty loud clunk too..sounds almost like it jumps a gear. Thanks

My buddy had this in hi 97 tj, and when he took it to a friend so they could diagnose and fix it, his friend got in it, gave it gas, and the rear end exploded. I would say take off the rear diff cover and check in there.

Do you have a stock suspension?

Check your Front and rear track bars too. They may be loose.

Check the suspension as others have said, but pull your rear cover and check for broken teeth on your spider gears. If you have a track lock it might just be broken down fluid, but it doesn't sound like it.

Check the rear end as mentioned and also grab hold of your rear shocks and shake them to make sure they are still firmly in place. You wouldn't be the first to break a bar pin or have a shock slip off the bushing.

So what was it?

I hate finding old posts in my searches where the OP shows up with a question or problem but never follows up with whatever answers he's found for the benefit of others.
