Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Assuming that the axles are good, The other causes of vibration can be caused by worn struts (common), or weak/damaged/broken motor mounts (also very common). Before you swap out any axles, take a good look at all of the motor mounts (on top and underneath). If any of the look worn, or look collapsed, replace them. These drivelines are very susceptible to vibrations if the mounts are worn. Also look at the front struts. See if you have oil wetness or evidenc of oil leaks from the top of the strut where the silver stem is. If you see oil dampness, replace the struts. A bad strut can cause a terrific vibration.
