If you're still rolling back when you put it in first, and let it engage, you're putting a lot of stress on the whole drivetrain...not good. You're probably hearing your rear diff twist around in it's mounts from the opposing torques. Be sure you've completely stopped the vehicle's rearward motion, before *engaging* 1st...

uh thats not a lot of stress on a manual man, i think theres a hell of a lot more stress doing launches

but most likely it is the diff or the tranny, mine made all KINDS of funky noises till i put the sti tranny mount in <dont know if its differnt than the one on the v8 sti> and its gone

That's like saying sticking your self in the eye with a screwdriver isn't really that bad, compared to jacking off with a handful of razor blades.

Try rolling out and not putting it into gear when you stop. Just stop the vehicle and see if it clunks. Because if so, maybe your rear swaybar needs tightening.

If it is making noise when driving over bumps and such, I would agree on the rear sway bar angle. Crawl underneath and shake the bar as much as you can. You hear the noise you know your problem.
