99 TA Rear Clunk
Occasionally I can feel a clunk that is coming from the rear end when I accelerate from a dead stop. Also on the highway this morning at 2500 RPM (automatic) I could accelerate and decelerate back and forth and something is clearly loose back there. I could feel the car pulling - almost as though the axle is loose.

Tighten your lower control arm bolts. After installing my subframe connectors I had the same symptoms on my car. Tightening the LCAs fixed it.

Control arms are tight; I'm not sure why they would loosen......

It was indeed the control arms. I tightened them to 80 ft/lbs...and the clunk in gone. However....I have some "slop" in the differential. With both rear wheels off of the ground, I could move each wheel with a fair amount of movement before the driveshaft moved. Any ideas about that one?

You'd better be able to move the wheels a fair ammount before the drive shaft moves or your gears would be toast, your fine.
