    The loud clunking is either a universal joint or a very bad rear end. I would suspect the U Joints. Check for play in them
    The clicking could be the hubcaps. Mine make any number of funny sounds

    Give more details on the clicking

                  :nonono:

                  Sure I may use a few sockets, hammer, and a vise, but I have done this before...

                      Just keep it clean and don't loose any needle bearings.

                      They rent the tool free don't they?

                        Ok, fuck auto zone then.

                        Go to advance, buy the two u-joints, and rent the tool.

                        You pay for the tool up front, then you get your $$ back in full when you return it.

                              just regular auto grease. Watch for fluid coming from the yoke when you pull it out.

                              I would change both since you will have it apart anyway.
