While the pan is off, we tighten the bolts on the transmission valve body to the specified torque. From what I found on the forums here it seems to be the motor mounts. I have this thump noise at times when I take my foot off the gas pedal. your fine buddy its the clutch just make sure while your in there you lube everything up. If I was smoothly accelerating there wasn't a problem. Makes no popping noise when I makes turns, steering wheel is not shaking on street or FWY. The noise you hear is all differential. It when the truck jerks its clunks and you can feel it on the floor. It's not a clunk when rolling on/off throttle, it's a clunk when engaging 1st gear from a standstill (and they sometimes do it when changing into 2nd but this is not so.
