When accelerating harder than usual I'm getting some clunking from the rear.

Think this could be the rear mounts? Or something else?

I think a beam refresh is probably on the cards at some point, but since it's my only car at the mo, can't really afford sending the beam off and being without a car for a while. Ideally I'd buy a refreshed beam and swap them over on my drive.

Thought I'd see if there was an easier fix first.

Good shout, I need to put some feelers out to see what my options are. I have a feeling he's about a 4 hour drive from me though. .

In terms of the clunking though, you think that could be rear mounts or could it anything back there?

Could be mounts, damper bushes, damper, axle bearings, or even worth ARB/tb splines
