Vibration

When going anywhere from 50-80 if there isn't a 'load' but it isn't coasting, kind of just moving along, it starts vibrating in the floor pretty good, I don't feel it in the pedals, but the floor vibrates, and you can hear it. Not really sure what could cause it.

Auto or manual? Could be early signs of throwout bearing failure.

I agree 100%...I have had past vehicles do this, and it was always a u-joint...Do you ever notice a slight popping sound when you go from park to drive or reverse...or from reverse to drive or vice-versa..

That is often another sign of a u-joint.

could be a u-joint, or very well could be tires out of balance.. if the u-joints arent making any noises going from revese to drive or park to reverse, id try getting the tires balanced first.

Is it doing it all the time or only when hitting bumps at speed. If its only when hitting bumps its sway bar end links. Crawl under and check for play
