    As title states i replaced an old slow flushing toilet with a new one. One thing i have noticed is after a flush i hear what sounds like clunks. Its faint but enuff to hear it and i believe its coming from the drain not the fresh water line. It happens immediately after the toilet stops draining. Any thoughts?

    I would suggest removing the lid and watching inside the tank for what is causing the sound. It could be the flapper closing, but I have never heard a noticeable noise from that.

    Some newer toilets don't have flappers, but barrels and some even have a silly dual flush mechanism that has more moving parts to it.

    Like Jeff said, pop the tank lid and take a look.
