We bought the Tahoe brand new in 2006. I'm taking it back to the dealership on the 30th. I will print your response and take it to them. I also found the following on this website, do you think it could be the same problems I'm having.
Question: 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe mileage: 19,000. A clunking noise is frequently heard coming from the rear of my Tahoe when accelerating from a stop. The noise can be quite loud from inside the vehicle. When I questioned the dealer service writer he explained by telling me the noise is normal. He said that Chevrolet used to adjust the rears to eliminate this noise but the remedy was found to cause more problems in premature wear in the rear. I shudder when I hear the noise! Is this correct or do I have a problem developing? Thanks for your assistance.
Answer: Try removing the drive shaft and lubing the splines on the "U" joint yoke that goes into the transmission. The transmission fluid normally lubes this yoke but a good heavy-duty grease lightly applied works better.
