mate, I am by no means an expert in KBs and to a large degree the solution is technique driven. I assume you are banging the wrist/forearm when catching the clean in the rack position? The way I was taught is that its really about controlling the speed of rotation of the KB as it comes over your hand and then using your legs as kinda shock absorbers to absorb the impact a bit.
Personally I also wear a pair of sweatbands high on my wrists and have found that this helps in limiting the bruising!
