1999 Type R DCCD knock/clunk/noise/judder

Hi guys, apologies for starting another DCCD thread but after sitting here for over an hour I can't find a difinitive answer.

I acquired this week a MY1999 Impreza WRX STI Type RA with 58,000 miles from new. I've owned 6 Impreza's previously but none of these had DCCD.

Basically I'm getting a loud clunking noise from the rear when turning slowly or reversing the car. It sounds awful inside because it sounds like somebody hitting the underside with a hammer. It's driven in the green at all times since I've had it. I can't fault the service history and its been extremely looked after. Is the noise common and do I have to accept it will happen or do I need to adjust my driving style? Should I be concerned about the noise/juddering?

Thanks in advance
