Default Honda Pilot Vibration. Help!!

Hi guys, my mom has a 03 Honda Pilot with a v6 3.0l. There's a vibration coming from under the vehicle. It only occurs while driving on flat surfaces at 30-40 mph. The vibration comes and goes when let off or by pressing the gas. It's a very loud vibration and can be felt throughout the vehicle.

Has anyone delt with this before or at least a link they can share with identical issues?

I'd like to get this figured out and fixed before it gets any worst than it is.

Thanks in advance!

put it up on a hoist get under the vehicle and have someone accelerate the vehicle to 30-40 and inspect drive axles/drive shaft for wobble.

also you could check tires while you are there. don't overlook the obvious. good luck

Thanks for the reply. I have not checked tires yet. Although, I was leaning towards the mid section axle or the load axle bearing.

But it's strange that the vibration only comes when cruising at approximately 30-40 mph. Once it's at that speed range, the loud noise/vibration goes away when braking or accelerating.

I'll definitely will verify both suggestions to see if I find any unusual movements
