Scrape, Clunk, Grind

Starting from a dead stop, pulling out of a shopping center parking lot, dealing with a large dip gutter, and going at it at regular startup throttle ... I get a strange scrape, clunk and grinding noise.

To me it sounds like the under carriage plastic air dams are scraping, though I can't believe my MDX is dipping that low to the ground.

But, the clunk and grinding sound like something in the transmission or maybe the CV joints.

Anyone else ever had this and found the issue?

Ride your Fury then. LOL....Kidding aside, might very well be CV joints or bearing!

I'm having a similar issue myself. happens mostly going up an incline from a stop, otherwise everything sounds normal. I have no clue yet what it is.
