'06 SR GT

One time I hit the throttle 25% from start I heard a loud bang - I thought my AWD was gone, but when I lifted all 4 wheels off the ground all wheels spun at idle speed (no throttle). And no FWD torque steer, so it couldn't be the splines/angle gear?

At stop, I switched GT gears to "Drive" and "Reverse" when not moving (holding on brake), in between gears it would click-click. As I go 5mph from start I could feel creaking. As I am rolling 10mph I hit the throttle harder and it doesn't creak or as much. Only from 0-5mph between D & R gears.

I'm no mechanic - any thoughts what it may be? Struts? Endlinks? Tranny mount? Etc

Either the symptom is not clear or there are too many possible scenarios for this?

check for rub marks down the exhaust, might have shifted. I was getting my resonator removed and after we welded it up the exhaust had shifted a bit and it was making a rubbing noise ONLY from 5-10mph than after it was gone. It was loud as hell. My rubbing was coming from a VERY small part of the exhaust touching the heat shield and it vibrating on it. Hope you figure it out!
