Re: AMC 20 - Clunking/Popping.

In addition to the u-joints, you may also want to pull the diff cover and check the state of the teeth. I had a Chrysler 9-1/4" making sounds just like you describe... clunk from start and especially in turns... turned out the diff gears were eating themselves, several had completely broken off.

Hell, of nothing else, good excuse to go to a D44.
