We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; wejust diagnose and fix them.

I am also going todirect you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please bepatient and permit me to do what I do best.I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” inreturn. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If thereis any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so Ican go another direction for you.

If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.
there is a technical bulletin of the front trans mount at the radiator area. first an inspection of the mount of flex and sloppyness. also the rear if the flex is excessive the mounts needs to be replaced first before diagnosing internal transmission issue.
how are the mounts ?
what i would like for you to do is to loosen the mount bolt from the bracket to the mount and then retorque the mount and then retry to see if the clunk is still there
PLEASE DO LET ME KNOW!!
is the vehicle awd?
there is no cv joint in the rear . so it has to be a brake or something loose in the rear like a shock , spring broken etc....
my fault. i have read your explaination the wrong way!!
if you lift the side that you hear up and turn the wheel slightly is there play on the shaft axially? is the brake pads loose? please see the anchor that the pads hold them in is there any play there?
you may have to take the wheel off to really see
yes it is easy . remove the 2 strut bolts to knuckle and then pop the axle out and replace.
