09 SRT Auto Trans or Rear "clunks" when slowing down ????

Anyone have a problem with there rear or trans clunking when slowing down when it down shifts by itself- and when going slower or easy clunks under the car sounds like the rear or drive shaft is kicking not sure if its the rear or tranny/drive shaft or if all the auto srt's do it -

Its annoying as hell I hear it mostly at night when going slower or letting off the gas and letting it down shift or just off the gas - not sure if something is loose or is this normal -any help would be great

I've been getting a minor clunk every now and again. Sounds a little like my old '69 Charger when the U-joints needed replacing.

Interesting...My 08 SRT will make a clicking, rattattata noise, like some sort of mass such as a coin clicking around what sounded like the "skeleton" of my car. Although it only happens when i exceed around 70-75 MPH.

Perhaps these clicks and clunks are actually conspiring against us? We must reach the bottom of this. Just kidding, truthfully it does not affect me as I'm usually listening to music deep enough to drown it out. But I mean the car only has 22k miles garaged since 08.

My 09 SRT8 has a very slight click too when leaving off the gas. It sounds like some play in the rear. However, when I test drove a new 2012 SRT two weeks ago, it did the exact same thing. I think it is normal for these getrag rears.
