    If the vibration is only present under load, I would check the inner C.V. joints for wear. These are somewhat tough to check. You will need to remove the axles, remove the inner boots and make sure the channels that the inner rollers run in have no worn spots. Wear will feel like a small dimple on one side of the run channels.

    The symptoms you mention are very typical of worn/damaged inner joints. You will need to remove the axles to check properly.

    Good luck
