      It's a royal pain to get to but I'd look at the linkage connections under the dash. In time the holes get wallowed out and will get sloppy and/or bind and clunk. Never seen new replacements if worn, you pretty much have to repair the ones ya got.

        That, or find replacements in better shape. On a good note, the mechanism out of a 87 GW will work on a 79 WT. I've done that swap and aside from getting the parts out of the Waggie, it was fairly simple.

          could be bushings but some years have the GM style washer pump (attached to the motor) and that clunks like crazy when not adjusted properly
