shaking the drive shaft only checks worn joints, the shaft must be removed to test seized joints...

Also check bushing in rear suspension and transmission mounts.... Philip

If the joints feel chunky or excessively stiff when manipulated, they need replacement... Philip

Hello there,
I am brand new to the forums here. But I am the owner of a 2002 Sportage, and it seams to be under the same conditions that your is under. When under moderate to hard acceleration it makes a harsh clunking noise like something is smacking around in the rear end. I was curious if you had found a solution to your problem? I recently replaced the rear struts, carrier bearing and a u-joint. Thanks for any feedback.
