I'm pretty sure you'd hear some sound between click and clunk during full lock turns.

i can hear clicks while in reverse, only 2 or 3 nothing when turninig, but there is very small vibration from the rear, feels like driving over very fine bumps

LOS is an unknown quantity at this point
My 840 used to vibrate between 20-25 mph then the vibration would go away. It turn out to be the cv joints. I replaced the whole drive shaft also ($700 for the part, installation took less than 1/2 hr.
You're better off by replacing the whole drive shaft if you can afford it.

You'll hear a clunk noise for your cv's

update, diff and subframe bushings replaced, car dives much better, but therre is still minor vib between 15-35mph and feels like it is comming from driveline (somwher in front)
all suspension have been replaced, guibo, csb,engine and tranny mounts, spark plugs , valve cover, prytt much everything that coud cause vibrations;
any ideas?, forgot to mention - new wheels anf tires (raod forced balanced)
