I would guess the clunking in the rear is either a sway bar end link or sway bar bushing. If you can get under the car (I can slide under the back end of it without even raising it with jacks), you will see a bar that runs across the car between the struts. It will be attached to the struts with end links (the are probably white plastic) and the bar is anchored to the body with two brackets with bushings. Those bushings are the most likely culprits.
If you need to jack up your car to get under there, jack up both sides evenly if you're going to mess around with the sway bar. As long as the right and left rear tires are loaded the same (either both on the ground, or both hanging in the air and the car up on jack stands), there is no load on the bar. But if you jack up one corner and leave the tire on the other side on the ground, the sway bar will have a lot of force in it. It's not at all dangerous as long as the two back wheels are evenly supported (or both unloaded altogether).
If you jack up the car and remove the tires, this is what it would look like:
#37 of 87 2006 Elantra Brake Problems
Sep 07, 2008 (5:58 pm)
My daughters 2006 Elantra hatchback has had the master cylinder replaced twice since the first of the year. The third time I brought it in I was told there was air in the ABS system and they bled the system and said it was repaired. That was 2 weeks ago. Tonight the brake pedal went all the way to the floor again. Any ideas or suggestions as to the real problem and how I can get it fixed. It is still under warranty with only 40,000 miles.

I had the same condition on a Japanese car about 3 yrs ago. No hydraulic leaks. I did replace the brake master cylinder but did not fix the problem. The problem was the ABS unit called the HECU (hydraulic & electronic control unit) of the Antilock Braking System. One of the normally closed valve on the HECU was stuck open. Was ok after replacement of the HECU.

My wife's '01 experienced the same issue with left side (right previously replaced due to an accident). I buffed it out with a buffing wheel on my hand held drill and different polishing rouges. Same thing I have do to to my '95 Dodge Neon about every three years.
#40 of 87 fuel stalling
Sep 22, 2008 (4:46 am)
My daughters 2005 elantra keeps having a issue with fuel. Everytime you fill the car up it stalls out for the first 50 or so miles. I have taken it to the dealer but they say there is nothing wrong. I thought at first that she had got bad gas and tried gas treatment. But it has happened numerous times and she has got gas at different locations. Any help would be great

You might take the car to Autozone and have them scan the computer for free, for trouble codes. If nothing shows up, I guess I'd try this---fill the car up then take it in and have a shop test the fuel pressure in the fuel rail and see if the reading (in PSI) is either too high or too low. This would indicate a possible fault in fuel delivery, such as fuel pump or better yet fuel pressure regulator.
I'm also thinking of some issue perhaps with the evaporative emissions system during fill up but I'm a bit lost on making the connection to the symptoms described. Perhaps someone here could carry this train of thought a bit further than I can.

I had the codes checked and all was good. I guess the next step is to have the fuel pressure checked.

My 2007 Elantra seems to sway from side to side. I have new tires on the car and the car has recently been aligned. Air pressure is good in all tires. What type of things may be the issue?

I have a 04 Elantra that I'm having problems with. I had the check engine light code ran and it was Code 443 Evap Vent Solenoid. My local mechanic is a bit stuck on how to repair, said hoses seem fine, nothing clogged. Anyone had this problem?
