    It's normal for it to move a little bit, but if you start hearing it slapping the bottom of the car while driving then its time to replace it... If you do have to replace it, then you have to get the whole driveline and its about $700 cause its a nonserviceable item...

    I'm still hearing a clunk between shifts. Only when driving normally. Not spirited driving. It sounds like it's coming from under the middle of the car, not the rear diff. Could it be the carrier bearing?

    Dude, I had clunking issues in my 05 STI that I could not for the life of me remedy. I even replaced the carrier bushings. Also replaced tranny crossmember, mount, all bushings, rear diff bushings, outrigger bushings. Still clunked. Only thing I could think of was it being the rear diff itself.

    You can actually hear the noise if the car is on in neutral and you push the clutch pedal in and out. Sounds like it's coming from the bell housing. It's been like this for 2 years and has not become any worse?

    Ah weird. But if it's in neutral and you hear the noise when the clutch gets pushed in, it can't be the carrier because the driveshaft won't be engaged in neutral.
