    Forgive if posted, searched and can't find anything.

    Sounds like my driveshaft "clunks" when going into reverse or from reverse into drive. It's only if I back up, go forward slowly and then hit the brakes. "Clunk" In fact it only makes this noise after I hit the brakes after changing reverse-forward or forward-reverse. I visually inspected the drive shafts, didn't see anything but then again I don't know what I am looking for.

    Suggestions?

    are u sure its not the front brake pads? they are floating design and make a clunk sound each time used in a different direction, I'm told its normal from dealer and they can grease them but it will come back soon after....

    huh......... it could be I guess. Sounds like it was coming from directly under the truck and I was thinking it sounding like the shaft sliding back and forth.

    Hard to pinpoint sounds outside the vehicle when inside the vehicle. Thanks for the reply, I will listen a little better.
