    I have a clunk sound in the rear end at a complete stop, foot on the break and in drive.
    Like a sensor or somthing is telling the trans to do something at this time. Again, foot on the break and for no reason a clunk sound. Any ideas?
    Its a 2008. Came with a factory biult in posi rear end.

    Is it a moment after you stop? Could be the spare tire moving around a little.

    No. It always happens..say 5 to 15 seconds after i stop. Just waiting for traffic or the light to change. Alomost like it changed a gear or something but it feels like from the rear end....

    Splines on the drive shaft. I lubed mine and the clunk went away.
    I drive a regular cab, 4 cyl, auto, 4WD (one piece driveshaft).

    Normal..... it’s the hamsters that provide the truck with power bumping into each other at a stop.

    .....or could be axle wrap

    Mine would thud after a stop. I lubed the splines and it went away. Later on I added a grease fitting to it.

    Mine was doing this. Check the forum for transmission flush. I had mine flushed by Toyota of Pensacola and it not only stopped the delayed clunk from the shift, it started shifting smooth like a brand new truck.
