    I have been told this is normal. With RWD vehicles, there is some "slop" or "play" in the driveshaft's U-joints.

    If its a clunk it could be from the rear like youve said but i would also check your tranny mount. If its cracked or broken it will definitly clunk everytime you shift

    Check for worn bushings or loose bolts. Can be the tranny mount or possibly the torque arm bushing.
