Auto??

Just souns like something's unbalanced... wheel/tyre (altho would have to be pretty badly unblanced.!!), brake discs or tailshaft?

I had a crook harmonic balancer once and that had some pretty nasty vibrations at certain rpms...

PS. Welcome to the site... and just quickly... no need to type in capitals :)

Also, check your engine mounts. When they go all sorts of movement happens

if the t-bars moving backwards and forwards, chances are the bushes are stuffed on the upper and/or lower diff control arms, this is a common problem since the xe/xf's
