On my GT it did it and now on my new Track.. It sounds like boards knocking each other in the trunk area... :dunno:
There is nothing in my trunk. I notice it more when cold on turns and bumps. I took my GT in and they said everything was tight. They did not hear it.Details... need details.
when does it happen? Turning? Going over bumps? Moving forward? backwards? sitting idle?
When the car is cold? hot? on fire?
Did you attempt to test anything, like remove the tools from trunk? any extra thing that you may have put into the trunk? bags? boxes? corpse? Something that may have gotten into the spare tire area?
Mine's doing the same thing, I brought mine in also and the said everything in the suspension was tight and that they couldn't find anything. I had taken everything out of the trunk including all the stuff under the mat, those foam insets containing the jack on one side and the pouch of tools on the other before having it checked. The only thing I didn't take out is the spare itself but I've got that screwed down so tight I probably won't be able to get it out if I ever get a flat.On my GT it did it and now on my new Track..

Been there, done that. Went crazy, then accepted the "thud" as normal.My project for this weekend is to lift the car up on jack stands & torque every single suspension, steering & brake component according the Hyundai Service website torque specs ... snip
My guess is the LSD
I never heard any noise untill I put the LSD in my car. It only happens on slow turn or bumps. I thought maybe I messed up something (I know I need alignment fixed) but I tq'd all hte bolts to spec, so it can't be a lose bolt, I double verified that. I guess when one of the helical gears goes around if the conditions are right is 'skips' a 'smacking' something? I never took apart a torsen so I am not 100% sure what it looks like inside, but for the conditions when it happens, it has to be the LSD. Whether it is bad or not I have yet to find out.
It sounds like a springy thump to me. Like when you push a spring, it is kind of creaky/notchy sounding. Hard to desribe but very distinct.
This is similar to my sound ^^^ when I back out of my driveway at an angle & the car is off camber putting the body in flex, it sounds like the suspension or rear axle pops. :dunno:I have the same issue when I turn right into an incline, such as a slightly elevated driveway. Yes, it sounds like a board was sliding around in the trunk.
I do not have a limited slip differential (LSD) as my car is a 3.8 base model.
My buddy has a white 3.8 track and he's noticed this as well.
Exactly. I've had that happen too when I back out of my driveway. I thought it had something to do with the flex in the car as well. I had a sunroof installed so I was worried that this messed something up. Perhaps the cold weather makes this more noticeable?This is similar to my sound ^^^ when I back out of my driveway at an angle & the car is off camber putting the body in flex, it sounds like the suspension or rear axle pops. :dunno:
I think you missed the point I was trying to make. If, because of lack of flex in the frame, one of tires is no longer in contact with the ground, the TCS sees a spinning tire and applies braking. Because the tire is not in contact with the ground even minimal braking will cause the wheel to stop with a thud. When the, now motionless wheel, makes contact with the ground again, in forward or reverse motion, the wheel will klunk as it immediately starts to move again due to the contact and any slack in the drive train.^^ This doesn't seem to be a traction issue.
