Any Master techs on here?

Looking for a master tech that still works at a dealership. Having an issue with the dealers around me stating a clunk is "normal" or can't be duplicated.


Thx

The differential on a crawl to a stop is normal because it is electronically controlled and obviously tied into the DSC system.

The front clunk/locking sound/thump could probably suspension related, mount, strut, sway bar, end links, many things its best to just jack it up and check all the body roll/stiffening components. Mine had a bad thrust rod ball joint, which seems to be common in these guys.

The diff clunk is the loctite between the driveshaft and diff. They recently did sib260118 and it helped tremendously but not resolved, either they didn't let it fully cure or maybe not put enough not really sure.
