Vibration when turning and accelerating

2010 F250 Lariat, CC, FX4, short bed, all stock with 20" factory wheels. When I turn left or right like at an intersection and accelerate from a stop, I have a faint vibration sort of like when you run over worn "wake up" strips approaching an intersection. Hubs are not locked and T-case is not engaged. Any ideas? Could it be torque converter shudder? Doesn't seem to do it on a straight take off.

2010, Lariat Stroke, Sterling Gray Metallic, CC, FX4, SB, 20" factory rims, Wrangler ATS, XDP coolant filter, Truxedo LO-Pro QT tonneau cover, ScanGauge II, DPF-R+4.0, CAT/DPF delete, Flo-Pro delete pipes, stock tips. Stromberg-Carlson power step for the wife.

Sounds like the exact problem that i had when I changed my diff lube to the Lucas crap. I had tons of chatter from the limited slip. Id recommend changing to the ford 75-w140 with a bottle of the factory additive. Then check ur tires to see how they r worn. If mine get worn in one direction or if i had just rotated my tires ill get a little strange feeling like that.
I only noticed that with my BFG all terrains but never with the OEM Goodyears.
