When first starting off the antilock brakes will do a self test. You
may feel that.
If it is driving, then the rear shocks might need replacing. I believe
that yours, like mine, has self-levelng shocks, and that the one might
be taking longer to pump up first thing in the morning. If the car has
90,000 miles or more without changing those, then they most likely are
in need of being replaced.. Also check the other various bushings back
there as one or more may have failed...
...or if you have kids, the cereal they have dropped into the spare
tire well has lured some rats, and they are asleep in the morning when
you drive off, and they fall off the spare tire making a clunk noise..
