Last weekend I replaced the stock (burned out) clutch in my 2.7L with a Marlin clutch. I love the Marlin clutch but whenever I let the clutch out too fast in first or turn corners while accellerating hard in 1st, I hear a grinding/clunking noise from the rear of the pickup. I've tightened everthing back up to factory torque specs and I can't see anything irregular (and believe me - replacing a clutch makes you very familiar with your truck's undercarriage). Any ideas as to what this could be? So far it hasn't caused any problems but it is most definitely not a good noise!

i just replaced my clutch on thursday and my truck is making a clunking noise to.
what i did was lift the two rear tires and put them on jack stands. then i had some one give it gas to about 25mph and i look under the truck and found out it is inside the 3rdmember.

My first thought would be something going out in the 3rd member like the spider gears or something. Do you have a rear locker? (If so, which type) Next thought would be the center support bushing (aka carrier bearing) for the driveshaft.
