Moderate vibrations at above average speeds

I have an e99 with 152k miles, trans rebuild at 151k so its all pretty new, but last month i noticed i got some decent vibrations around 45-65 mph, i thought it was tires needing to be balanced until i tested my theory by throwing the truck in neutral and it rode fine, when i come off the accelerator it rides fine as well, but when im even slightly on the accelerator i will feel it in the wheel and shifter, any help would be really useful! ZF6 trans btw

i have about the same thing going on. im thinking its drive shaft related. u joints, carrier bearing, slip joint, somewhere in there. do you feel a clunk when you get back into the accelerator when youre rolling?

Not so much but a small one, not really a clunk though

is your truck lifted? long bed or short bed? It sounds like a rear driveline to me. Pull off the rear driveline (marking its location on the transfer case and diff first) and check for slop in the double cardan joint. On mine there was a pin that had worn through.

I went to my mechanic for his opinion and it turned out to be u-joints, stock height long bed, the vibrations are gone which made me real happy
