    i have a 99 dodge ram 1500 with about 99k on it.. when i shift in to reverse it makes a loud clunk. this has happened since day one but i noticed the other day it seems to go in to reverse really hard and the clunk got louder. its almost like you have to force it in, kinda like when you park on a big hill:(. got any ideas whats up? i know dodge trannys are not the best, lol thanks for everything:drinkup:

    its not the u-joints i dont think.. its comming from the tranny, it feels like theres pressure on it when you go to shift it in to reverse, or when u go through reverse to get in to gear, its kinda hard to explane lol im doin the best i can

    time for a tranny -- i had alomst the same problem, it didnt start until 90k , but at 95k it got worst and at 2 :00 Am after a night out , i couldnt back into my drive way, only forward and i was told that i was luck to have the forward gears enough to drive it to the trans shop
