A couple days ago I nailed a large rock sitting in the middle of the road at about 40 mph (insert criticism for not watching the road here) while on my way home. Best I can tell, I hit it about dead center of my car. I pulled over, checked the underside of my car the best I could and noted only a small dent in the cat. I drove it the rest of the way home with no incident (about 3 mi). The car was parked for about a day and I noted that there was no fluid leaks and that the undercarriage appeared scraped up but basically fine.

When driving it to work on Monday, I noticed that a clunking sound came from the front of the car when any of the following happened:
- Engaging the clutch in any gear (particularly loud in reverse)
- Depressing the gas pedal in gear

From what I've read on this forum it seems like it could be tranny mounts, the differential, or the CV joints. What's the best way to diagnose the problem and where is the problem most likely to have occurred?

The car is a '00 Civic 2d EX with the 5-speed.
