I have a clunk at varying times, but most common when shifting into reverse and then moving backwards.

I can not see anything visually wrong after many inspections, but recently noticed the center bearing appears to have torn rubber.

However, and i suspected this might be the case, when viewing pictures of new bearings, there are holes in the rubber to allow for movement and cushioning, so how do you tell if your bearing rubber is torn more than the normal holes that are supposed to be there?

Check the rubber bushing gizmo between the transmission and the crossmember. It's been known to go bad and cause funny noises.

I felt the same thing when I first bought my Titan. There's absolutely nothing wrong with your truck. We have a slip tube driveshaft in our Titans , that's the thump you hear. We do have a 2 piece driveshaft though. Trust me you will know when the carrier bearing is going bad, but as for now you have nothing to worry about.

I've had this truck for 10 years. The noise im referring to is not normal. Upon farther inspection, I think the carrier bearing rubber is torn well beyond the built in holes, I removed driveshaft, waiting on bearing to come in mail, then I need to figure out how I'm going press it on and off, I'll let you know if it fixes it.
