vibration on Acceleration

I get a little vibration when I accelerate but it does not happen all the time. I think it is mainly when I have the steering turned or I have a have load. It is coming from the drive train I think. U joins maybe?

Possibly u-joints, possibly limited slip differential shudder.

How would I trouble shoot that? I looked at it sunday U-joins look good no play in them. I thought I would change the rear end oil next? The vibration when I accelerate is just from a dead stop only for now.

Probably just limited slip shudder. My friend's '03 does it and never did anything with it and has had no problems in the 6+ yrs that he has had it. Mine does it a bit too.

Ive also heard of greasing the slip yoke on the front as a solution to this.
