Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

There are a few suspension parts that can cause knocking noises. Such as swar bar loose, strut mounts going bad. You should really have a shop do a complete suspension check.

It sounds like 1 of 2 problems but to start with jack up the drivers side rear of car and block front wheels with 2 blocks of wood or 2 bricks , put a stand under chassis and then your safe to work.
Release hand brake and spin rear wheels ..and then hold 1 hand bottom and top and try to shake the wheel.. any movement means worn bearings ..any noise when spinning means worn wheel bearings..If ok
get under the car and bang the exhaust all along and if the rattle comes when you get to the muffler you have you answer.
Let me know how you get on . RON
