    The clunk could be a broken trans or motor mount. The long arm from the rear end to the trans is the torque arm. It keeps the rear end from winding up on acceleration. No you cannot remove it without a replacement.

    trans mount is the first place I would look. Easy to swap out and pretty cheap.

    most of the time you can't even see the tear... how ever... what you can do is see if your shifter moves up and down when you get on the gas good...
