Check your exhaust system - something loose or broken (e.g., a hanger) on your exhaust could be the cause.

Also, I know on my truck, there's a heat shield attached to the tranny pan - if it comes loose, it could be causing the noise you hear.

how about the other 5 things i listeD? lol one being the shocks.. the bushings could be worn out, but it would still seem "tight" to the touch cause of the pressurized shocks.
