Vibration between 2000-3000 RPM

Hi, I have a 2005 GT. I've been getting a vibration. Feel it through the whole car. Notice it on acceleration 1st 2nd around 2500-3000rpms (seems to be worst when turning right and when itís wet outside, but that could be my imagination) Also been getting a vibration at 70mph while in gear or coasting (Iíve put 2 new tires on since and have rotated the tires, didnít change anything) In the past couple weeks Iíve noticed a deep whirling (?) sound around 38-40 mph while in gear or coasting. Seems all this is coming from the engine or u-joints/driveshaft. Any ideas?

I could copy and paste what you just said my car is doing the same exact things except im getting a clicking noise from the rear of the car when I start off. Oh yeah my car is a 2005 with 14k miles.

I would say a wheel bearing, probably rear, or a bad u joint on drive shaft.

I have found that the vibration is definitely exaggerated when turning right, accelerating between 2000-3000 RPM in any gear. And the deep whirling sound around 30-45 MPH while coasting gets more pronounced when I turn slightly left. Except for these things the car's running good.

Sounds like a wheel bearing to me, especially if it has like a whomp whomp whomp whomp noise to it

vibration

Could it be in the diff? When you turn left the side, left side case gear spins slower then the right side speeds up....perhaps a spider gear???

There is no such thing as to much horespower..!!

Would you get a vibration, all the time, between 2-3k? I do. It's worse if I'm turning right. Have you had any other issues?

I was wondering if there should be any movement at all when moving the tire in and out to check the rear bearings? My fronts are tight, no movement at all, but the rear has some movement to the point I can hear a click when moving it back and forth..normal?

A quick follow-up... Took the car to Ford after deciding messing with the rear end and bearings wasn't a good idea considering the need of special tools. Sooo after detailing the problem and going for a ride with the tech they tried adding some friction modifier...didn't fix it. Brought it back and was told it was in need of a rear end overhaul... replace all bearings, clutchs.. to the tune of $1330. I was told it was the problem and this would fix it. Guess what? it didn't. There was NO improvement in anyway...vibrations still there. Needless to say I feel like I've been taken for a ride and the cars going back today.
