I originally said "Constant velocity joints are only in the front." I was wrong.

Get under the back and grab and twist the driveshafts, you'll see if there is any play in the UJ's, chances are the play is in the diff or the propeller/drive shaft (in the UK its a prop, in the US a drive, not sure about OZ sorry..) the one running front to back anyway, the prop has UJ's too and a centre bearing who's rubber donut goes weak.

If the rear drive is independent suspension as it is in the US it has the same type half-shafts with CV joints.

If the clunk is noticeable when shifting from forward to reverse w/o the car moving, it's somewhere in the drive line - shafts, differential, joints or suspension.

If it happens over bumps it's either suspension or the rear door, possibly the hinges, or as mentioned the latch adjustment.

My father-in-law's 4.1 had a mysterious annoying squeak coming from the rear. To find it, after checking for a loose jack etc, I rode in the back next to the door while my wife drove. Turned out one of the door hinges needed lube - fixed!

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

I appear to have been wrong. While the service manual refers to the "REAR DRIVE SHAFT ASSEMBLY" for left and right, it does not refer to CV or constant velocity. However it does not use the term for the front either.

I learn something every day.
