    Wheel hop? I'm not that familiar with the car yet but that would be my guess.

    Will do, after the snow clears up I'm gonna clean it, and put it on a lift to check everything out.

    If you are launching, and you hear repeated thud/clunking, you're more than likely experiencing wheel hop. Which is a cause for your gears screaming for mercy. If you're hearing clunking when you're turning the car and losing traction, then yes, that can be diffs.

    Mounts? No.
