found out what the clunking is. on the rear differential the brace/mount bushings are trashed causing it to move up and slam back down. would it be better to pull the same part off of another car or just to replace the bushings themselves? considering i barely have garage space let alone a press... any help is welcomed. thanks!

replace the bushings. You won't have to replace them again, in addition to doing the work only once.

kyotomojo101,

Used bushings aren't a good idea because any of them will be of the same age as your car, and pretty much beat to death. Buy new ones from many different sources that you'll find online.

Then search YouTube for videos showing how to change them out yourself with homemade tools made from hardware store bolts and washers, etc. There are all kinds of them online. As a last resort,buy the bushings and have a local independent mechanic install them. Good Luck!
