Only on that setting and the one above it, when I turn the car makes constant clunking noises, I have no idea why but I just want to fix small things like this before I start modding. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Thanks for any help :)

Its clunking because the center diff is tight under that setting...not locked yet, but getting tight. When you turn, the front wheels are moving faster than the rear, and the outside wheels are moving faster than the inside wheels. with every wheel moving at a slightly different speed, your center diff doesn't know what the hell is going on, and a slight clunking noise is the result. If you were to lock it and make a slow tight turn, you'd hear all sorts of noise.

so what kind of issues would there be if it does it in auto? mine clunks at the bottom of gears at wot in auto....could it be an issue with the difs? BTW i had to put new tires on front two days ago due to some f***er that slashed my tires.....the back are almost bald but i didnt have money to buy rears until this weekend. Do u think it will go away once new tires in rear are on? Sorry to hijack thread

The diffs perhaps? Mine clunked like crap in Auto at slow speeds (whilst turning). A change of diff oil and it was gone, and has been gone for over 15,000 miles.
Thanks! i will totally do that. mine does the same thing.

did you change it yourself. how hard was it?
