Today for the first time I hear a clunking when I turn left. So I tested it by shirking (like when race cars turn side to side to warm up their tires) it would sound like it was coming from the Dana 20 rear axel passenger side. I don't know much about axels. It would be a single clunk. Is this a bearing? Should this be fixed right away? How much $?
Thank you for any enlightening knowledge,
Chase

if you have a dana 20 REAR end, youve got bigger problems than a bearing...
bearings dont make single clunk type sounds

a loose rear brake shoe, or backing plate, or backed out wheel stud might..

maybe the spring is moving on the mount?

jack it up and wiggle stuff , like the grab the tire try and move it side to side, see if you can duplicate the noise..

or maybe you can try and describe it better for us

Hey Bakes,
You were right on the money. Two of the four bolts were somewhat loose--very easy. After tightening, took 'er for a drive and no clunks. Thanks for the ideas.
