Hit two deep potholes and now there is a loud vibrating noise coming from the front I believe happens when I first hit the gas to take off, used to happen when I'd turn left or right. Now just vibrates when I take off, feels almost like something is rubbing. Please help!!!

It's not doing it when I turn anymore, let's say I'm at a dead stop I press the gas and that's when it starts. Once I get going it stops, it's mainly happening at initial take off.
