Hello:

I have been experiencing some noise from my rear end when I make a left turn. The noise isn't alway there, but seems to happen after more than 40 miles of driving. It make a load clunking type noise. The noise will go away once I start driving straight? Any thoughts
Thanks in advance
John

this seems actually a standard car question for any IRS equipped vehicle;

sure sounds like you have a bad bearing somewhere, most likely the wheel or axle on the side that is clunking;

if one side is gone, you can almost count off the seconds til the other side goes, as well;

that probably wasn't the good news you wer hoping to hear, but it's better than driving on it til you lock up one side, spin out and marry yourself to a pole or tree;

give that some thought, because that's probably the way Clark bought it, and no ten of us put together could match his skills;
