It's just a kind of pop when bringing it out of Park. It doesn't sound too bad, I just thought I'd throw the detail in there to see if it may be related some how.

I took it to a different shop than where I bought my tires for an oil change and I had them balance the tires just to eliminate the chance. It was the balance, have not had the vibe again. They had one of the machines that does the road force balance. I would try that first.
I would be very happy if it were only a tire balance issue! I'll look into that.
