Re: clunking in the diff?

congrats on your car

my car had the clucky diff from day one and is very
i have 6 speed manual and it starts clunking at low speed gear changes
i have minimized the noise by quicker gear changes or gear changing with above 2000rpm gear changes this has worked for me quite well but i do get the occassion clunk. i think the diff in these cars need abit of revs to keep them happy but thats just me

but it is a small price to pay for the enjoyment i get out of my car
