ONLY WHILE DRIVING OVER 30MPH, A "CLUNK" HAPPENS WHEN I TOUCH THE ACCEL PEDAL AND WHEN I TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE PEDAL. WHAT IS WRONG? MOTOR MOUNT(S), FWD DIFFERENTIAL GOING OUT OR WHAT. OTHER THAN THAT, IT DRIVES DOWN i-5 @ SEATTLE LIKE A LINCOLN NAVIGATOR AS LONG AS I ACCELERATE GRAUALLY AS REQUIRED

Hi LORIEM558,

Thank you for the donation.

Normally bad mounts would not clunk very loud unless it is completely worn off or not properly tightened. It would make driving very uncomfortable with all the vibrations.

I would suspect the following,
1. CV shaft inner joint joints.
2. Steering linkages,
3. Lower arm bushes.
4. Exhaust mounts.
