How to find out what is causing shudder

(2008 Dodge Durango)
Maintaining a low speed is the worse recognizable shudder. Feels like driving over corrugated road. Was really bad, had torque converter replaced, plugs, coils, tire rotation and still a shudder but much smaller. Took back to transmission shop, they claim it is not Torque Converter, but after much convincing they replaced it, (so they say), still there. They claim its a rolling vibration, happens at idle and while driving, they said they removed serpentine belt and reved engine and still verified shudder. It happen mostly at slower speeds while trying to maintain a certain speed, then if back off accelerator, it smooths out. They have no idea what it could be.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Trying to maintain certain speed
How long have you had this problem? Moth

Its not a slamming like youd get with a mount, but yes i discussed it with aaamco and when tire kingdom gave another opinion, no one mentioned mounts. The transmission mont could be a thought, nobody discussed that.. having the torque converter replaced helped out 80% or better but still there. Id assume aamco would of noticed a mount, but who knows

GROUNDED mount - metal on metal - not necessarily obviously broken.

Should be noticeable in shop service bay - transmission in gear - while brake checking - drive and reverse.

Brske checking = transmission in gear + holding brakes + revving engine.
