This is common across the 200 series range.
I had the problem on mine and after a Toyota greasing, it was fine. The should have taken out the shafts, regreased them and replaced the grease nipple. Not simply chuck some grease in!

I suggest you take it back to Toyota to fix it again. In extreme cases they have been replacing the tailshaft(s).

I was talking to a rather unimpressed owner last week who thought it was diff backlash that was the problem. If this is incorrect perhaps I will tell him to read the above

For what it's worth all forums as well as formal Toyota advice is that it the noise does not represent damage. Noise is normal, and is all models. Personal opinion is that it is not worse than previous 4wd I owned, but accentuated by the generaly low noise levels of the new 200

Common problem in the 95 series prado's and also the 120 series. Clunks when you come to a stop then when accelerating away from a stop as well. I was concerned with this on my'n when I first got it but now just grease up every 5k. Apparantly the proper way is to remove the shaft, clean all the old grease off it, put this copper based stuff on the splines then regrease once back together. Toyota now are trialling a new shaft for the prado's due to this problem but havnt heard anything on the 200 series. Regards Steve M
