ML55-bad clunking/lashing on take off!

our ml just started doing this . It feels like when I take off(except with light throttle), something catches and engages, kind of like driveline lash but much worse. You can feel something clunk in the steering column and chassis, and it feels like it's coming from the front end. Any idea what it could be? I'm taking it in on Monday if possible.
