Default Noisey tacoma 2001 prerunner

been to the dealer twice on a strange noise coming from underneath the
truck, passenger side towards the rear. rattle thump and it typically
happens when up or dowm hill from a stop then start forward. Toyota cant
locate the problem but did a "lube drive shaft" drives great otherwise.
but seems to be more so after the "service"2001 tac prerunner with 134k
miles. had the trans replaced @ 100k. any one else developed a noise
like mine?
tks

If your rear brakes are not adjusted right it can cause "drive line wrap
up" as my mechanic called it. He lubed the u-joints, slip joint and
adjusted the brakes and the clunk went away--- for awhile.<g> Some say
it is because the springs allow the rear axle to rotate or wrap which
causes the slip joint to bind up until you let off of the brakes. Do a
search for tacoma driveline wrap. Here is one forum:

Whoops- the search should be for tacoma driveline clunk. Here is another
result from that search:

appears to be a combination of causes.

This not the axle wrap noise prob.....something else. happens on a bumpy
road, come to a complete stop then excelerate, then comes the rattle,
thump, tin can sounding doise. Very annoying, but truck drives great.
Dealership inspections turn up nothing as usual.....Again, kind of a
rattle thunk grind then goes away within a few seconds. I,m the original
owner, bought it new in 01 and have maintained per the manual. Any other
ideas?
tks
