    It was a really easy fix which is what I am hearing, my pops has been driving the LX450 and he took it into his friend who actually fixed it.

    It was the drivetrain oil pan or something to that effect, I'll find out later today and post it up, all it cost was 50 dollars for the part.

    Hopefully someone can use this information....

    Let us know what he fixed, because i don't think there is such a thing as a drivetrain oil pan.

    Pull your driveshafts apart, clean and re-grease.

    Just be sure to use a "pan" to catch the "drivetrain oil".

    I am guessing the classic Cruiser slip yoke spline grab, and resulting clunk at stop/start.

    But there was a detour around a "drivetrain oil pan"..... :confused:

    Enquiring minds want to know. I am quite fond of my clunks, but wouldn't mind their absence...

    SOMEONE PLEASE find the fix for this clunk.......I have had it for years and I am sick of it. Is it the Driveshaft like Tarbe suggests?? I have heard so many opinions on this... Come on can't we fix this issue that has plagued us for years??

    you wanna get rid of it??? Well then be prepared to take out one of your driveshafts permanently!:grinpimp: The play comes from the t-case I think. Just play in there. Greasing the splines will help, but not for long.
