It seems like the clunking may be normal on some of the SRT8s so I am not as worried about it myself either.

Happens to my 2008 too at random times. speeding up then letting off the pedal, or coasting then stepping on the pedal.. Tune or not..

LOL @ random clunking...

My last ride was a Ford Raptor. The Raptor forum has a long thread about The Clunk in that vehicle. Turned out to be drive shaft binding issue. TSB was issued and problem was addressed.

So far no clunk in my SRT8 (only 300 miles on it, knocking on wood).

I have a clunk that is REALLY a BANG when full acceleration from a dead stop in AUTO ... does not do this in SPORT or TRACK mode. I can occasionally feel a light clunk pulling away from a stop sign at a normal pace (not aggressively) and an occasional light clunk when paddle shifting down at "approaching a stop sign" speeds ... slowing. While not a show stopper, it's different than my buddy's which has no clunk at all.

My dealer will be looking at this on my 6K check up.

I am familiar with these sounds too, and I guess we have to live with it(Junk)

Re: Acceleration and deceleration clunk

Checkmate make sure you have all the latest software in the engine, trans, dtcm and electronic limited slip module. Any one of those could affect it. There was a tsb for a driveline clunk in the rear. I think it called for a replacement bushing if I remember correctly.

ALL of my driveline clunking was solved by completely replacing my rear diff internals. been smooth ever since. I do NOT agree that it is a normal sound. the awd lexus GX doesnt do this...the awd nissan gtr doesnt clunk...the awd audi Qs dont do not clunk....so i wouldnt blame it on the jeeps awd components. its just poor craftsmanship.
