S430 4matic front vibration

My 06 S430 4matic vibrates at highway speeds when accelerating from a stop. It can be felt in the steering wheel and the floor. Careful feathering of the throttle will stop it but it will reapear if there is rapid acceleration or deaceleration. When the problem first appeared it only did it on hills (up or down) while on cruise. Physical examine of the forward propeler shaft does not show loose or worn U joints. 80 K miles.
