Does this help? Information on 2-3 Upshift or 3-2 Downshift Clunk Noise. Some vehicles may exhibit a clunk noise that can be heard on a 2-3 upshift or a 3-2 downshift. During a 2-3 upshift, the 2-4 band is released and the 3-4 clutch is applied. The timing of this shift can cause a momentary torque reversal of the output shaft that results in a clunk noise. This same torque reversal can also occur on a 3-2 downshift when the 3-4 clutch is released and the 2-4 band applied. This condition may be worse on a 4-wheel drive vehicle due to the additional tolerances in the transfer case. This is a normal condition. No repairs should be attempted.

A broken motor mount would cause this, I have a 2007 Denali and it had broke a motor mount already, it took the dealership 3 tries to find the issue, I had to point it out to them.

By chance did the dealership fix it for free or did you have to pay for it. I feel like a motor mount shouldn't go bad that fast on a 2007 Denali and I just had the same problem. Trying to get them to fix it at no cost.

I have same problem.. it is the torsion bars the plastic mounts on them deteriorate after time and they are the culprit of the noise. guarantee it!
