Explorer rear vibration when taking off (as in from a stop)
and turning, but only when on a slight incline going up hill. If it is on an incline going up and I accelerate going straight up the incline there is NO vibration. Happens whether a right or left turn. Doesn't seem to do it when the truck turns left or right from a stop on level ground.

Check u-joints and differential. ALso, these vehicles have a history of bad shackles that hold the leaf springs to the frame. Check them for rust that may be allowing the axle to shift when accellerating or turning.
