when does the clunk happen? certain speeds, certain gears, engine load, over bumps?
there are alot of things wrong with it so it is possible it could be something else. I think it might be the track bar too now that i think about it. But the noise usually happens normally when turning. How much play is there normally supposed to be? Because it is alot of movement.

well the right rear axle slips in and out about a tenth of an inch so when im going down the road it makes a loud clunking sound. I pulled the axle out and looked at the bearing but it seemed to in good condition.
