Vibration at 50kph

Hi All, I have a vibration when I get to 50kph once I get to 70 the vibration has gone ,it is more noticeable when going up a hill at low speed ?? was thinking drive shaft but that was fully recoed and has only done 5000ks,all mounts are new .
Any ideas would be great.
Cheers Kev

I had something similar on my WB, I tried the obvious - balancing the wheels and that didn't make any difference (generally if the vibration is felt in the steering wheel then worth a check along with general front end) but if the vibration comes up through your seat it's more likely driveline...I changed front and rear uni joints and that helped a bit..but it was still there...I lowered my back end - as the old bloke who had the car before me had it raised to tow a large van...after I lowered it the vibration went away...so my vibration appeared to be related to drive shaft/diff angle...but as some others have suggested it may in fact be the trailing arm bushes worn and I've sort of masked the problem...yours being a van with leaf springs may be different but it's reasonable that worn bushes could be a contributor...there is some good info online regarding driveline vibration and some methods to test and work through depending on what equipment you have so worth looking up...eg https://www.autoserv...

I would try swapping wheels front to rear or side to side. If nothing substantially changes then you can maybe can try the wheel balance.

Check your back tyres too.
Nathan had a vibration like this in his EA Falcon.
Turned out to be a bulge in the sidewall of one of his back tyres.
