My 1996 SL500 used to make a little "clunk" when coming to a stop. It was like you could feel the transmission downshifting. That noise suddenly went away, but now I have a MAJOR clunk from somewhere in the driveline, feels like behind the transmission, when driving along and accelerating suddenly when the car has to downshift upon acceleration. I was thinking Flex Joint(s), but the mechanic doesn't think so.

Anyone else have an SL with a transmission/driveline that goes "clunk" at times? I HOPE, HOPE, HOPE that I am not looking at a new transmission. I have found a place in CA that will rebuilt mine for $2,250, which is better than the $5K that the mechanic is telling me, though.
