Default TROUBLE with my bonne!

This just started happening today. When i start driving from a complete stop i hear a clunk in the back area. It doesnt happenin when the cars shifting. Usually after 1st gear i hear it. Not to sure what it is. I was wondering if anyone has an idea of what it could be.

lay down and jounce and rebound your car, as if you were bench pressing the rear end from underneath. You'll hear it if it is in the suspension.

From a starting roll? There'* a slight clunk when you go from a roll most of the time. Is it during any special instances, only when you get off the gas or what?

when im clompletly stoped i get on the gas not going over 2500 rpm and sometimes before i shift into first or after first or even after third it clunks. Always on the gas never when it shifts so its not tranny. I tried benchpressing it (lol) no clunks when i do that.

mine has a clunk too like when im rolling out of the drive way or on my street at slow speeds. at first i thought it happened only from the driveway, but found out later it happens a lot when im crusing at a very slow speed. if i bounce my car from the top (never tried benching it), it makes no noise at all.

Probably slightly outta line... and no help at all (I would hope .. haha)... but you just conjured up one of the first scenes of the movie 'Goodfellas' in my mind.

We now return to you to our regularly scheduled program...

Think the A-Arm bushings could be out? maybe that plate the strut does into at the top? Ah. maybe a bad tie rod end bouncing around.

They said it was in the back, So i'd figure CV'* are out of the question. But they do click at odd times.
