: the clunking noise may be coming off of your rear end - my car sometimes has the same noise, and the dealer said that's normal.

: the vibration maybe from warpage of your rotors. if you were careful when you beded-in your pads, that might have occured. or if your rotors are excessively thin, they'll be more prone to warpage.

: as for the noise - sorry, no help there. my matelmaster make a lot noise, only sometimes, thankfully.

If your car is making clunking noises from the rear end, it is *not* normal. Have the dealer check the rear diff bolts, as they may have sheared off or become loose. If the noise happens on acceleration only, then you may need to replace your rear shock mounts.
