Smile Help! Camry 2006 Rumbling, Clunking, Thudding Noise Near Wheels

Hi guys, I've hit my car from underneath as captured in the video below:

Ever since, the car sounds very rumbly while driving and increasing speed. Noise tends to vary at turns.

I've done a quick inspection from underneath and all the CV axle boots are fully intact, though I've noticed the oil pan nut is leaking (possibly another piece of damage done from the bump).

I can't see any other thing that looks loose. Any help that you guys can offer?

Anything hitting the tires or axles, such as a plastic splash shield?

Is is possible the engine moved on the mounts or bent axle?

Have you check the rear of the car for damage?

Hey
From what I can see, no nothing.

The engine mounts were in a pretty bad situation to start with, so that may be the culprit, though that sounds quite serious that it may have bent the axle, though I think this is unlikely,

Ill most likely get it checked out by a mechanic today and will then get back to you

So I went and we found a bent cv/axle

I got it changed + Ball joints on both front wheels. The sound has lessened, but is still there. The bearings are also in a pretty bad way so once those are also done I should be good to go.

If the axle bent, there may be internal damage to the differential.

To check bearings. Drive car at around 30 mph. Turn steering wheel left and right to shift the weight of the chassis to left and right tires/bearings. A bad bearing may now become louder.
