2001 Sienna, just replaced engine, transmission, right drive shaft and motor mount bushing, both front struts and stabilizer links, rotors and calipers. There is now a rattle or clunking when going over bumps. Everything is tight and torqued to spec. I noticed that the left drive shaft has some up and down movement or play as well as in and out of the tranny about a 1/4 inch. The book says a couple of mm but I don't recall if I tested to ensure the shaft locked into plcae or what the play was. I think I shoved it in and moved on. Could there be an issue with that shft or the tranny output bearing with that much play? That is the only thing I can see that would cause the clunking. I did not change the strut mounts. They looked ok and they are not causing the typical clunk when turning the wheel. It is when I go over bumps.
