Question about 2000 Chevrolet Silverado
ALTHOUGH THE CLUNKING SOUND COMES FROM THE REAR BRAKE AREA IT'S PROBABLY YOUR SLIP YOKE NOT THE BRAKES. TAKE OUT YOUR DRIVE SHAFT CLEAN THE SURFACE OF YOUR SLIP YOKE WITH EMERY CLOTH AND LUBE/GREASE IT INSIDE AND OUT. ANOTHER SOLUTION IS REPLACE THE YOKE WITH A NEW NICKLE PLATED ONE FOR ABOUT $60.00

Depends on the model, alot of the 1500's have drums, and many have discs. Usually, the 2500 and 3500 have all wheel discs.
I'd suggest pulling off the wheels and checking the pads or shoes depending on what type of system it has. It sounds like they may be wore out and are grabbing erratically. A quick inspection may show you the exact problem. However, it could be something more critical, such as a dragging axle, bearing, or even a broken lug could cause that if all the conditions are correct.
I'd definitely pull the rear wheels off and check out what the problem is.
