    is your exhaust tight? i had a similar sound about a week ago and i got up under the car to find that one of the bolts were about to come out, tightened it up and had no problems....just a thought though

    Mine does the exact same thing, it did it before and after I installed my exhaust no clue what it is. Ive been looking for months hope somebody can help. I was thinking its somthing in the suspension loading up but sounds like tranny linkage of some sort. I only have 15000 on car.

    in your case..chances are your pipes are just loose somewhere and banging against your car...lift your car and follow your pipes..shaking them..and you'll find the spot.

    i have the EXACT problem except for it's not every single time. Just most of the time. Dealer said that it was normal. I dont care how normal they think it is, (they also said the clank in my front wheel well was a split LCA but it was actually a loose caliper mount bolt...), I just want it gone. A gearhead I work with says it might be gear slap. I know the previous owner had the rear end redone about a year before I bought it. I've replace the trans mount to no avail. I'm gonna have the u-joints done in the near future. If that still doesnt do the trick, I'm gonna have a shop reassemble my diff gears to make sure there's nothing loose.
