How do I fix a clucking rear end of a 95 1500 suburban

The clucking at the rear you are hearing is most likely the rear u joint on the drive shaft. Place the vehicle in park and set the brake. Slide under and inspect the drive shaft. If you can move it up and down or rock it side to side the joint is bad.

I have a problem with the transfer case. What will happen if I do not get this fixed right away ? Also I hear a clucking noise on the rear passenger side , what could this be? ?

this could be a number of things with the clucking noise coming the rear passengers side. could be axle seal has blown, something stuck in the breaks, blown axle. dif on its way out, loose drive shaft. with the transfer case all it does is when engaged puts drive into the front dif, as the rear is already in drive so if your transfer case goes you wont have 4wheel drive it will only be the rear wheels, although in saying that, if your transfer case decides to lock up then you could be in some serious trouble. so i recommend you do get it fixed right away.

"I hear and feel "Clucking noises when I drive me

If it is clucking then someone has hidden some chickens in your trunk, open it and let them out. If it is clunking then I would suspect rubber bushings on any of the several suspension components have reached the end of their life and metal is banging into metal as the suspension moves up and down.
You need to take it to an alignment shop and have them give you a list of what is worn out. Consider replacing those parts and getting it aligned. If the clunking is reserved only to times when you shift from D to R and back, then I would suspect U joints and CV joints in the axles. If it is reserved to times when you are turning, check the CV joints and wheel bearings. Everything on the car is 14 years old and each part will eventually fail from use and age.

Safety says i need sway bar bushings.what and where are these?

the sway bar is a bar that runs acrossed the front of the van from strut to strut. It is bolted to the cradel and then has links that run from the bar to the strut to increase stability. The sway bar bushings are rubber mounts that hold the bar down to the cradel. The bar runs though the mounts one each side where the bar and the cradel meet. If they are wore out you will normally hear a clucking noise from the front end when you hit bumps. To remove and replace them there is two bolts that hold a steel cap on top of them on each side. Remove the cap from both sides then the rubber mounts will have a split in them so you can get them off the bar. To install them is just the reverse of the removal. Good luck! 4 thumbs up is appeciated if this helps.

Clucking sound when i shift the gears on my 4.0

It sounds like you have a bad universal joint. It's most likely on your rear drive shaft. Innitially it's not a very expensive repair but if you delay it will do additional damage and cost more it could also possibly become dangerous.

I can say that as for the engine shutting off when slowing down, it sounds as though the fuel filter needs replacing. I am not sure as to what may have caused the headlight blowing twice in one month. The clucking noise you mention, does it occur only when riding over bumps? It may be a shock or strut in need of replacing. I recommend that you have that checked out. Not sure about the fan making noise on 3 or 4. There could be some debris caught in the fan housing. I sincerely hope that I have at least helped with one of your problems.

Noise...driving over sound like the front struts

If its a squeeking noise the rubber bushes on the shocks or the lower contol arm are worn out, if its a grinding noise it could be the shock itself. If it happens when you turn, a clucking noise might indicate a worn cv joint, or a worn wheel bearing. These are all things that need to be replaced by a professional mechanic, if you have the tools, the bushes might not be too hard to do yourself though. Hope this helps!

Strange sound

I have a 05 Forenza Wagon that made a clucking sound. I had to replace my auto tensioner when something went wrong with it and it broke. First I heard a high pitch sound as i was driving on the freeway and then the clucking. Finally, the auto tensioner got so loose it threw the serpentine belt off and shredded it.
