My first guess would have been wheel balance, but you mentioned new wheels and rubbers. Did you have the wheels aligned at the same time?

It won't be the engine mounts. You'd feel that coming from up front.

Still having a problem.....

So when i drive and i accelerate , my car vibrates , feels like its coming from the rear end . I thought it was my rear wheel bearings , changed those , figure it had minut chance of being the links , but i replaced those. i am at a loss. i have a nagging though it would be one or multiple of my engine mounts , but the sensation of the rear end bugs me.

Could it be the engine mounts? and how easy is it to change it without actualy lifting the engine out?

I have new rear drums with bearings (forgot the tone rings so abs/traction/ebrake lights are on) But its not the drums or bearings . Neither is it the links i just replaced those.

So any thoughts would be appreciated.

Rims and tires are new and rear end shook before i got them , so its not them.
