There is a post about this already. Normal operating characteristic with the independent rear suspension.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...ighlight=clunk


"Well from your description it sounds like you're lugging the car a bit when shifting (which actually is normal since these cars are designed to be skip shifted and lugged in the next gear). If you take the revs up a little higher you'll notice that the clunk goes away.

The clunk is the slack in the driveline. Because of the IRS, you now have 2 extra U joints that will "slack" when you press the clutch in to shift and then when you begin to let the clutch back out, that "slack" is drawn back up quickly. It's very normal for IRS cars.

But if you're concerned, by all means, take the car into the dealer and have her looked at. "

I hear the sound you are refering to also. Sounds like the front u-joint or the output shaft area, only happens when shifts are a little sloppy, but it makes me wonder.

I have it too, but chalk it up to piss poor shifting ability...on my part. It only happens at low speeds.

The rear driveshaft needs a spacer, GM's gonna release a fix for it within the next week or two. Nothing you can do about it but wait trust me.

When I was in Oshawa for the meet & greet, we had a tour in the Martinrea plant ( suspension manufacturer ). The gentleman who was giving us the tour mentioned that there was some type of washer added to the drive shafts to eliminate the drive line noise....
