Default Accidentally Scraped Bottom Of Car, Weird Sound

I'd just like to say that NYC has the absolute worst roads in the world. I'll skip the story, basically scrapped the under side of my 04 on some concrete cone thing protruding out in the middle of the damn road. Immediately after i noticed weird sounds, pulled over, looked under car, no liquid leaks(still no leaks)

I read that exhaust leaks sound like a ticking which isnt this, havent ruled that out but it seems unlikely now, ill have it tested on tuesday anyway. Now it sounds like I have a cheap fart can exhaust on the car from the inside, the sound is coming from the front portion of the car though, theres a drone sound from about 2k to 2.5k after that the engine is revving too loud to hear if the sound is even there, under that and the sound is nonexistent. Prior to this my car was extra quiet now it sounds like i have an aftermarket ccrap exhaust but it isnt really that loud, i was the only one in the car noticing it but i know my car ive had it long enough. Its hard to explain smh

In short it sounds like a low moaning in the 2k range, drone in the cabin and i feel a slight vibration in the steering wheel and on my legs as i accelerate, not the normal feels im use to. Any help in a direction I should look in on tuesday as to what could cause this and what type of specialist would be best to go to for such an issue?

There was no difference in performance of the car from what Ive noticed, still went when I stepped on it to test it out. uuggghhhhhhhhhh

The car is lowered on tein springs. Going to jack the car up and take a look but I cant probably till tuesday,
