vibration at 30mph and up
I have been driving my 280 4.5 and have noticed a vibration at around 30 mph and faster. Its not so much from the front/steering etc. it seems to vibrate more in the rear and send a vibration through the seats. I was on the freeway, and at certain speeds it would smooth out, but when I either accelerated or decelerated it would come back. I have jacked the car up completely and can't detect any rubbing on any of the wheels. Could it be my driveline? If so, what do I look for? Play etc.
The car has around 135k on it and has sat for a very long time. Engine and tranny run beautifully. I'm just going through and correcting as I go and when money is available.
