The noise is caused by the axle button being worn out, this lets the axle move back and forth and clunk, this is a unique problem with C clip retained axles, it is a noise issue but will not fail and cause any more damage, in order to fix it you must have the axles pulled and the diff carrier checked for excess wear where the axle retainning C clip rides, if the carrier is ok then replace the axles.

Just got my 2008 Silverado out of the shop. It had a "clunk" when I came to a stop or slightly let off the brakes from a stop. Dealer replaced the slip yoke and a grease kit under warranty and problem is solved.

The common fix for this greasing the tranny slip yoke. I have been running my 2000 silverado for 169000 miles like this. it will not damage anything, just a little annoying.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the bushings checked. They can be worn out that's why during take off you can hear a clunking sound. Do check the brake pads too for if they are worn out you'll notice a metal to metal noise.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

NAW, sounds like you need the updated slip yoke and "special" spline lube, I would think your local dealer would have done that way before going into the diff. Or maybe they did and I didn't post it?
I've also found sway bar end links to cause a clunk but you will usally hear this when you are turning or going over a bump also, But once or twice I have found them to be the problem with stops or starts only!
If it's 4x4 then you could try and narrow it down by pulling the rear drive line and going for a short drive in 4 wheel drive and see if the noise is gone.

When turning steering wheel - either way, clunking sound.


Sounds like you have a bad CV joint, this will make a clunking or clicking noise like you described only when turning, and varies with vehicle speed.

Have it repaired before it breaks and leaves you stranded, or damages anything else.

Clunking in rear end Jeep Liberty 3.7 automatic


Nearly impossible to tell you what it is without actually hearing and seeing it. I recommend that you check the rear universal joint, pinion bearing and wheel bearing assemblies for looseness. If it's that loud it shouldn't be too hard to find.
Good luck!!! If you need help doing the repair or have other questions just ask!!!
