What conditions cause the noise? anytime it's in drive and rolling forward? Only at certain speeds? under light/hard accelleration? Does the thumping speed increase with wheel speed,engine speed , or change at all with gear changes? Turning have any effect on the severity of it?Any other things you can think of that cause the sound to change? Let us know , maybe we can be of more assistance.
