Clunk from Front-End

First time on the thread and in need of some assistance/advice. I have a '12 SRT8 with 42K miles. I bought it 3 months ago, and now having some issues.

When accelerating from a dead stop, there is a clunk/thud coming from the front-end and/or underneath my feet. Picture a rope with some slack tied underneath my car somewhere toward the front and attached to cinder block. Once that slack is gone, there's the thud.

I've had it into the dealership on 4 separate occasions now for the issue with no fix. They've replaced the rear strut mounts, one of the control arms, and most recently the driveshaft. I've got the SRT team assisting, but nobody can seem to figure out what the issue is.

After doing some research, I'm thinking it could be the mounts or bushings, specifically the motor mounts. Anyone have a similar issue and fix?

Appreciate the help.

My '14 has done it- the shocks each failed.
