I have been experiencing this all winter, and its been driving me nuts. When its cold, and I accelerate abruptly or on an incline, I start to hear a loud and slow clunking from what seems to be the rear passenger side. Hard to pinpoint. As I go faster the clunking is faster, and not as loud and apparent, but still there. Finally disappears when I am at a consistent speed. If it warms up, or its not that cold outside, I feel increased driveline vibrations between 20-40mph. If the weather is warmer or the X is completely warmed up, I don't get the noise.

Any ideas? I haven't had a chance to drain the fluid yet, but will hopefully as the weather gets warmer here. Need new tires and suspension right now, holding off on both until I figure out what's going on to see how much the fix will be.
