1995 T- Bird drive train vibration

I have a 1995 Bird with the 4.6.,it has approximately 150000 miles on it. about 6 months ago the car developed a vibration
in the drive train.it becomes noticeable around 45 MPH and gets progressively worse
with speed .I have replaced the motor mounts and the IR bushings but nothing else,is there some other bushing or mount in the drive train that typically needs to be replaced on these T-Birds?

Drive shaft U-joints.

You might as well replace the drive shaft with a Mark VIII or better DS.

Don't discount the tires being out of balance either.

My thought has well. daughter the other day had a vibration in the wheel, I was checking the wheels out and she had "mud" caked on the inside of the wheel throwing the balance off
