Re: Clunk/thump

so with your foot on the brake you shift from park to R or D and there is a clunk.

what motor/mileage?

most likely something to do with rest of drivetrain...not the motor or the trans.

could be the one of the driveshafts or pinions.

i would think a good trans place could help you figure it out rather than a stealer.

we also have known issuew with front pinion mounts in the grand cherokee from that era so may be similar for the commander. the bushing goes bad. this is a very common failure for the GC.

Re: Clunk/thump

Might be the front differential isolator bushings - i think there's a thread in here somewhere..
