I have a clunk in the rear of my C7 when I pull away in a curve. It doesn't seem to happen when I pull away straight. Anybody? -charlie

You got tha right Elegant. My ZR1 was real bad for that, especially on concrete surfaces in Parking Lots. I think it has something to do with the tire width and tread design. I was real conserned when the car was new. It is a bit embarassing when a stranger to the car is in it and doesn't know what is going on. Just like the noisey Ceramic brakes & Rotors of the ZR1. Ahhh!!:cool:

Thanks, guys. But we seemed to have missed the essence of my question. In the title and in the message, I mentioned specifically, the REAR of the Vette and not the front end. The clunk I hear and feel is reminiscent of the old positraction days when either the wrong limited slip differential fluid was used, or the unit needed to be "broken in". "Younger" enthusiasts may not even be familiar with this particular problem. Thanks.

Charlie; If your car is a Z-51, see post 136 in the thread below. It might cover what you are hearing. If your car is not a Z-51 you might want to get the hypoid grease / lube level checked in rear diff. What is the manufacturing date of your car?
