Chasing a clunk sound in the rear when I go over bumps -- sometimes. Went through the suspension with no success and even retorqued the body to frame bolts because I replaced the body bushings last year.

Then in frustration I shook the fuel filler neck while gassing up, and there's the clunk. Tighten the tank straps, right? Wrong -- the tank is tight, and the clunk is the filler neck moving in the tank. No gas leak.
Anyone else see this happen?
Or is this my "opportunity" to get a Caprice wagon tank and fuel sender? ;-)
