Re: Loud Clunk When Putting Into Drive

Should there be zero play in the drive shaft? I, too, am getting a bad clunking when i hit the gas and let off the gas.

I just bought a stock 1999 XJ, never been off road or abused, 97K mileage...all u-joints, engine/transmission mounts seem good, and yet it clunks and lurches when put into any forward gear, but not at all when put into reverse. Did yours clunk when put into reverse, or only when put into a forward gear?
