Recently purchased a '05 Sierra and have notice a clunking sound coming from the rear of the truck accelerating from a stop. I did a search and tried the rubber in between the leaf springs and it didn't do a thing. My questions are, could it be bad leaf springs? Bad shock since the truck has a little over 112k? Since it has drum brakes, could they be sticking? Or could it be the rear end itself? Anything would help right now since it's becoming more of a nuisance than anything.

Springs in the drums could be getting worn out, not pulling the shoes away from the drum fast enough, are the drums or tread hot after driving?

Pull the drive shaft and lube the outside and inside of the drive shaft yoke that goes into the trans with some hi temp grease. The cast iron splines in the shaft yoke kinda digs into the aluminum splines in the trans causing a clunk to sound in the rear when leaving from a stop. I can almost guarantee this will work. Have had to do it to a many of trucks.

SIMPLE. Read the "sticky" thread in the maintenance section. "Leaf spring clamp fix" will usually take care of the problem for about 10 bucks.....

Thanks for the recommendation. Mine has been doing this for a month or so & my old '98 did the same. Looks like I've got a project for this weekend.
