Question: 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart (Automatic) making a knocking sound

Make: Mitsubishi
Model: Lancer Ralliart
Transmission: Automatic

Defect: Loud "knocking" sound and vibration when accelerating at 35mph and above. (Gets worse as speed increases) When gas pedal released and car is coasting,"knocking" gets louder. Problem is not present when brakes are applied, but returns when they are released. Only occurs when moving. When engine is revved in neutral, no sounds present.... Any suggestions?
