We checked the brakes,cv boots, tires,and tranny is new etc. Im thinking it maybe the drive axle? Does this sound correct?

    I have been many years working on cars and just spent a lot of time recently chasing an intermittent vibration problem caused by a bad halfshaft. The shaft itself did not appear bad, the vehicle only had 90,000 miles but replacing the axle fixed the problem. Did you check the engine mounts as well? Also Check the transmission / differential oil level is correct.
