    2018 Pete 567 Eaton 18speed manual.
    Only 2way locking diff, interaxle and front axle. multiple drivers.
    So 2 drivers complaint of hearing clunking sounds at rear of truck. It spins out easy when starting up empty or full. No traction control light comes one and it does not engage traction control.
    I took truck for a with empty and full load, 63,000kg gross. It does spin out easy starting up, but I pulled some pretty big hills, crawling up a 30kph.
    But something still doesn't feel right.
    Anything I could check with this info.

    I'd like to help, but I dont know enough about the electronics.
    Disk brakes? Have you, or can you have a good look at the condition of the disk brakes? Check for temp differences between them each after an hours drive. I can't help but wonder if you have a brake issue causing both the noises and spin outs. Don't know, just a thought. Is it the same tire pair that spins out first each time?

    This one is still drum brakes. It went into shop right away, so didn't have time to fully diagnosis.

    Vin please?

    What rear suspension type?

    Loaded or empty make any difference in the noise? Less loaded?
