    I think I broke the mustang (02 GT, manual trans)... Put the new tires on today (274/40/17 from 245/45/17) and after taking a left on the way home I heard a violent clank/clunk noise from the rear. It sounds/feels like the LR tire when it happens, and tends to happen accelerating around corners. It also happens occasionally in a straight line. Its definitely coming from in/around the rear axle. Thoughts?

    It sounds like its rubbing on either your...

    Quad shocks, inner fenders, outer fender lip, exhaust pipes. When you take a corner, your rear axles "walk" to a small degree from side to side.

    Take a look in all of these area's....you'll find your problem.
