I suspect there will be something loose in a CV joint, under load it will be held in place but when it is not under load it flaps around causing the thumping. You should be able to identify which side of the vehicle it is coming from then a mechanic should see it ASAP because if it lets go completely it will not only be dangerous and stop the vehicle from going anywhere it will be very expensive to fix the colateral damage.

It sounds like you have a bad strut, have the strut replaced, if it does not fix the problem seek help from a suspention shop.

SOURCE: thumping sound
If it's also a "wub wub" sound, look into your tires. I had a flat spot in my front driver's side tire that made the "wub wub" sound. Couldn't hear it well if driving slowly, but as I would pick up speed, the "wub wub" would increase in frequency and volume.

Sounds to be a engine mount. Put the car in in 1st as you would take off. With the brake on. See if the engine is pulling up on that side. Also do these in reverse.Which ever side your engine moves, is most likely the broke engine mount. To replace this, I usually loosen the mount, jack the engine up just enough for the engine to raise to sit on, take the old mount out and install the new. tighten the bolts and release jack slowly. Go through and tighten the bolts again for tightness. The dealer states on a small car the time is 3-4 hours, but I had my old off and new on within 7 min. So it's an easy job.
