As I accelerated out of the lights, I heard a loud bang at the rear of the car. When I accelerate, it does not make any sound, but when I decrease acceleration, it starts banging again (also when I put it into gear). I thought it might be the diff, but a friend suggested it could be the central bush needs replacing? I had another friend look underneath the rear of the car and noticed a bolt that supposed to hold the tail shaft is out by over an inch? Any suggestions as I am mechanically challenged would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

Check all bolts on the driveshaft, also check the center bearing on driveshaft these can cause a banging sound on accel also get someone to check all 3 diff bushes in the rear cradle ( where the diff is) and also check all the joints for the arms that go to the hub and the bushes in the blades, these go from the hub towards the front of the car
