clunk while shifting from drive to reverse or vice-versa

Hey guys,
I've been searching older posts, but can't find an answer to my question. When shifting from drive to reverse, or vice-versa, do all of you get a clunk? It usually happens when turning in tight spots or getting out of parking spaces. I think this is normal for trucks, had it almost with all the trucks I have owned. However, I thought I read where some don't have this clunk, no noise at all.


aloha, Derrick

Thanks Wmtom,
However, I already read that post and checked the bolts. They were in solid. I don't think it's axle wrap because the truck isn't moving (taking off or comming to a stop). Hmmm..... I'll keep looking.

That is usually caused by the driveshaft universal joints, high idle, or a worn rear end. I usually this on older vehicles.

After searching a bit furher. It seems that JT has this same clunk. He thinks it is the backlash of the gears, and isn't a big problem other than embarassing noise. This sounds good to me!
