Default clunk in rear end????

here is the deal....06 baja 6050 miles 5sp NA. When i push the brake pedal i hear an ever slight clunk from the pass rear wheel area. When i release the brake pedal I get and even bigger clunk but it is still faint(but it is louder then when I press the pedal). When i accelerate i can hear a slight clunk too and if I rev it up to 3k in second gear and let off the gas i hear a clunk then too...then when i reapply the gas i hear a clunk again. When i back up to park it at my house I hear a slight clunk but if i am turning the wheel at the time the clunk will be even louder.

Anyone have this issue? I really don't want to take it back to the dealer and have them tell me nothing is wrong with it...because oviously there is something not right.

Tell me what you think.

Did you check your spare tire to see if it is loose and moving around?

I'd check that, maybe make sure your tailgate is closed all the way?

Otherwise, take it to the dealer! It's a brand new car, if a strut mount or caliper bracket is loose etc. you don't want to drive too long on it.

I'd say the tire is in there pretty good but i will check it again (I had it lowered to do undercoating) and the tailgate is closed good...I have the ozz bros cover so that makes it all close up good and tight.
