Question about Cars & Trucks
When I am driving my 2003 explorer and I lift my foot off of the accelerator , I can hear and feel a kind of grinding or jerking sound...it almost feels as if I am driving over tiny speed bumps.
When was the last time you checked the oil level?

the theft light flickering leads me to believe that your problem is with the vehicals imoblizer system

SOURCE: I have a 2006 chevy
On my cobalt (same platform) there is a known bad engine mount that clunks (like you have bad shocks) when you go over bumps.
If you look under the car from the front, you can see its a circle, (supposed to be ) filled with a rubber/composite bushing. They crack and this causes the banging.
It is supposed to look like this...
However, the rubber breaks off and your engine is flopping around.
This part needs a press to press out the old piece, so a mechanic would be the best repairman for the job.
The scraping noise is a different problem. I would suggest CV joints, but being a 2006, they shouldnt be bad unless you tow, or accelerate heavily.
I would lean toward a bad wheel bearing with the symptoms you are describing - also a job that requires a press.
You're in for quite a bill!
Figure $250 each wheel bearing and another 100 or so to fix the mount.
Dealership would be 2x that.

If it happens with light accelleration then there's a good chance it's your torque converter. This is one of the few weak points with MDX
