Default Rear End Noise.

I've looked around the forums and google and checked if anyone has the same issue as mine and I found nothing.

Cars rear end starting to make this steady clunking noise during acceleration, right around 3000 RPM (16-17 MPH). It sounds like someone is lightly tapping the chassis behind the driver seat. Clunking noise gets faster when accelerating, but after reaching speeds (30 or above) clunking sound seems to vanish...

Has anyone every encounter this type of problem?

Check rear subframe, does the bushing that the diff attaches to, have black goo or lines going down the subframe

Check the drive shaft bolts, I had a similar problem, tightened back up and now it's gone. My oem rear diff bushing is shot too, I thought it was the main responsible for the noise but I was wrong.
