BIALORUCKI is on a distinguished road
Default Rebuilt front differential and tranny rebuilt. Loud clunking front end

Just had tranny rebuilt and front differential rebuilt (rotors bearings housing components...) Steering components appear fine as well as u joints. I get a load clunking noise coming from the front end when rapidly accelerating from a stop. Noise goes away once I speed up, 35 or greater. If I accelerate slowly noise not so prevalent. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Out of money energy and time. Thank you guys for all you do your absolutely heaven sent. Happens in all drives 4wheel high low overdrive on or off. Greater noise if turning while accelerating

Wh1t3nukle will become famous soon enough

Recheck the shock mount bolts at the bottom. I can't remember from the manual but the torque on them is like 100 ft-lbs.

Might also check the track bar on both the axle and frame side. Can do this with 2 people. In park, you under the front end and partner slowly turning lock to lock. Watch the ends of the track bar and maybe the sound will show itself.

There is a start on checks and to eliminate other causes before more suggestions.
