Why is everyone suddenly obsessed that being driveshaft? I had similar thud and it was actually ISS - intermediate steering shaft. At take off power train moved on mounts causing that thud. Ask GM or even Toyota people, they "milked" those shafts bazilion times.
It's something in suspension folks. Engine mounts, sway bar bushings. Same ISS as technically any car has them.

You could be right but

[/quote]The car is full-time AWD (60/40 power split) so I checked the play in the driveshaft tonight (car in neutral, parking brake set) and found it to be quite loose. Using my hand and very little effort, I could freely rotate the driveshaft about an inch and half to two inches in either direction and it felt very sloppy. To make sure it wasn't normal, I checked my mom's RX300 which is also AWD and it was so tight, it wouldn't budge at all.[/quote]
