hi i have a 99 d2 with 58k and just got it this past summer. ive been hearing a clunking/shifting? noise somewhere in the drivetrain whenever the car is in motion; that is, slowing down or accelerating. its very frequent. anyway ive checked my axles, driveshafts and other things, from what i can see it looks fine. i know its a very vague description but any advice would be great

It's totally normal. If you do a search on this forum, you'll see tons-o-posts about this very thing. The transfer case is gear driven, not chain driven. There, by nature, is a little 'slack' in the gearing and that is what you hear/feel. It is most apparent upon the release of the accelerator, and is most pronounced between 30-70MPH.

Does this describe what you are experiencing? My dealer suggested switching gear lubes from the factory stuff to either Redline or Motul. Apparently this will help reduce the gear whine sounds as well.

The other problem that could be causing your noie could be the front cardon jpints on your front drive shaft. They have been know to fail because they did not come from the factory with grease jerks. They over heat and take out eith er the t/case and or the tranny. Have someone check these right away, I replaced mine at around 38,000 miles and the bearings were dust.
