    I've just recently had a new diff put in my ute, a standard commodore diff. Because the one I had in before; the gear ratio was too high or low for highway driving (5th Gear) Now 9 times out of 10 when I change gears I hear this clunk after shifting in, what is it? Is it just me?

    Also just at the point where I let off the acceleration and push the clutch in, the engine revs? Is this normal?

    Thanks In Advance :)

    it revs higher cause you still have the accelerator pedal in for split second while you apply the clutch.. i do it sometimes :p

    and you probably bought a dodgy diff

    I have an auto :( but when i deccelarate then accelarate i also hear a clunk, i think it has somthing to do with the tailshaft engaging with the diff...... no idea but i do know its a normal thing to happen :p
    how loud is the clunk?
