Question about Toyota T100
I have a 1998 T100 SR5 4x4. When I am breaking and come to a stop or when I am accelerating from a stopped position, I can feel something slide in the rear end. Thanks in advance for your responses.

SOURCE: Clunk noise from rear of truck
How about the U joint? If it's shot, you will hear a clunk when u start up. You probably already know, but jack up the back of the truck (both wheels off the ground) make sure u blocked front wheels front and back so it can't roll, use jack stands so u don't get squished, truck in neutral, e- brake off, climb under, grab driveshaft and twist back and forth to see if there is slop or play in the rear universal joint. Let me know what u find. Good Luck, and don't get squished (or squashed). countrycurt0

not the springs in most cases just the bushings they ride in, also check for lack of lubrication of the leafs, they have nylon slide strips between the leafs, but they fall out and then the spring loads up on braking and then unwind and you fell a thunk when it does so, there is a special grease injection tool/tip for a grease gun that is used to get grease into the leaf segments that really helps, use a Teflon based grease to to this, it is blue in color and available at many up scale parts stores like NAPA and Carquest.

3 things; U-joints, (very likely) ,engine or transmission mounts, or mud under the engine or a 4th possibility would be tires (seperated or out of balance ) good luck

May seem to be unrelated but, I had a similar problem with my last truck and it wound up being ball joints. It sounds similar, (especially the rocking forward after stop), might be something to check. If you're talking about a 4WD, it could be your transfer case.
