Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

A clunking on passengers side at rear

I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy
When I drive it there is a sometimes loud clunking sound coming from
the passengers side at the rear.
I have a manual 2wd/4wd/low floor gear shift.
Could it be my the 4wd?

I had a Wagoneer manual 4wd that sometimes froze in the winter-making loud clunking sounds, from the same area of the jeep.

Could it be the same thing with the manual Jimmy 4wd?
thank you
Marie

    I was concerned about the clunking because I got myself into some worrisome situations with the 4wd manual shift when I owned a Wagoneer.

    I will have the transfer case checked - and get back to you.

    thanx so much

I have a 2000 jimmy and my right rear shock at the top of the connector has rusted out and the bolts are lose so every time i hit a bump i hear the clunking noise. easy way to check for this is to go over a speed bump at a angel where one tire goes over at a time and see if it does it when that tire goes over . i have not had this fixed and its been this way for a hard 60,000k so far

For whatever reason, all vehicles of this vintage, tend to have excessive corrosion of the frame and suspension. The first thing that I'd check is the condition of the rear spring shackles. I've seen a number of them simply rust right off the frame. When that happens, the axle to frame can shift when you turn or hit a bump.

Good luck.

If the noise gets louder around corners while the 4WD is being used the Constant Velocity Universal joint is worn out, if not the truck probably needs stabilizer link rods they are fairly inexpensive but the CVU joints are not.
