You have a bad axle cv joint, this causes the vibration while accelerating and is a fairly common problem. You would need to determine which axle is the problem by removing them and feeling how they move by hand. You have 4 axles, but if you feel the vibration in the steering wheel its going to be one of the front axles. You could just replace both and this would guarantee the fix. Also recommend oem axles, as some aftermarket axles are not the right size.

We can continue to work on your question, rating does not close out your question. Remember, in some cases it can be difficult to completely diagnose or help repair your vehicle without being there, but I try to give you the best possible answer with the information that I have.
