Default Clunk in rear 2007 NS diesel auto

Hello all.
I have a 2007 NS auto diesel with 114,000 on the speedo and every time I either press my foot down or take my foot off the accelerator, I hear a 'clunk' coming from the rear of the vehicle. I have taken it to my long-term 4WD mechanical workshop to check it out.

He told me that he checked the diff oil and couldn't find any problems. He also told me that there was not enough space in his workshop to check it further, take it home and "when it gets worse" bring it back.

Has anybody else had this problem and if yes, what did you do to fix it?

It's a common problem, ask your mechanic to have a look at the rear diff bushings. Few here may mention to get genuine and not the Nolathane brand. It could also be the shaft uni joint.

Before you get to far with diff bushes, check that rear axle nuts are torqued up. One particular side, I think the left side from memory has come slightly loose on a few people and the symptom as been a clunk when on and off throttle.
NS SWB X 3.2DiD - Factory locker, Hella spotties, GME UHF, roof racks otherwise stock as a rock.

Retired: 1991 NH SWB 3.0L V6 5sp Manual, Mickey Thompson ATZs, GME UHF TX3200.
Wanting: Rocksliders, 2" lift, snorkel or perhaps I should wait and purchase a NS swb in 12months time.
