Yesterday when I shifted my truck into drive I here a noticible clunk noise so I shifted it back into park and the same noise. Tried it a few times and the same result. When outside and looked under the truck with the wife shifting from park to drive and repeat and the noise was definetly comming from the trans. When I shift slowly it seems the noise is not as loud or sometime no noise. Truck drives very smooth otherwise. Does anyone else have a truck that does this? Is the normal?.

Btw I have hemi with 8 speed
Edit: I have a 4x4 truck
