Dan and others.  I replaced my two front dif bushings and it didn't 
make any difference.  I still have a clunk.  While under the car doing 
the repair I kind of hit the sub frame near the left bushing with my 
palm (hard) and I heard my clunk.  I could get the same results with 
the right side but not as loud.  Knowing what a pain those are to 
replace I might live with the clunks for a while.  Moral of the 
story...get under the car and wack the sub frame with your palm to see 
if you hear a clunk.  If so you may not have bad diff mounts.  By the 
way I had my car up on a lift at a garage so the wheels and subframe 
had no loads on them.
	Does anyone have a good way to get the subframe bushings out and in 
without dropping the sub frame??????

The 85 4ksq I just bought has a loud clunck just about any time
I shift it (mostly 1-2, 2-3 though).  I'm pretty sure it's the
same thing.
