My Z28`s rear would clunk going straight forward, but I don`t recall ever being able to feel it. Was the tranny rebuilt? The tranny has a anti clunk spring as we call it that must be reinstalled or it`ll clunk also. Since you say the rear does chatter in turns, I would look further into the additive, the kendall additive may not work. Even so your in england, I don`t see why you can`t order royal purple gear lube or have access to another Synthetic gear lube, I`d say it`s worth a shot, ever since I tried parts store anti chatter additive and it didn`t do away with the problem I don`t trust them. If the clunk is still present I would Investigate further into the rear again or the tranny. If the clunk is in the tranny the noise can travel down the drive shaft and make you think it`s coming from the rear.
