Re: Clunk/thunk on 6-5 coasting downshift.
Holy cow add me to the list. I just bought a used 14 one owner with 26k. I seriously thought it was a characteristic of the beefy trans. I was ready to buy 5pt harnesses bc it feels like a F1 car trans braking. So I just learned a new driving style with the way it downshifts. Braking for a light, I press the brake pedal til 45mph under and let off, then it downshifts auto braking bt 4 to 3 slowing me down 10mph, then it hits 2nd and I brake to a stop. I've put 2k on it so far and have an appt to see the dealership about it next week for the rough downshifting. I figured out this can't be normal and scheduled service. Now I just read all pages of this thread and I'm just gonna ask for updates and no mechanical work be performed. Seems replacing all components of the drivetrain fixes nothing 100% and I don't want to be without my SRT, I'm still in the modding process. I love it and will deal with the rough shifts if it has to be that way. I have an extended warranty and it take it in when I reach the frustration level some of you are at. I'm just too happy with everything else it does for me power wise. I do have the weird 6 to 5 downshifting also, but no clunking yet. Lol, I think this may be why the previous owner traded it in.
