A new question is answered every 9 seconds accelerate harder and it moves

Resolved Question:

L322 Range Rover 2002 4.4 with 70k miles has been looked at by main dealers 3 times to rectify a noise/vibration that occurs when the car is in the higher gears under moderate load. Only tends to occur when climbing an incline and will will stop when you stop accelerating. If you accelerate harder and it moves in a lower gear, again the noise goes. Any ideas? Have had chassis ears listen to it and have checked wheel bearings, pads and done visual drive shaft check. Should I be looking at the propshaft perhaps?
