Drivetrain vibration

I have a vibration starting at 45mph. Its worse from 45 to 50 then smooths out past that. I can some what feel it at 75mph. I can feel it in my butt and gas peddle, sometimes in just the wheel at 35mph no higher or lower then again at 45mph. I replaced the u-joints saturday and no difference. Any ideas on what it could be? Tires? Wheel weights?. Could this be the start of the Death Wobble?

Check torque on the shocks and the track bar ends. Worn bushings will produce vibration such as you describe too.

Have you checked the drive shaft carrier bearing and u-joints on the drive shaft.
