None of the things you mentioned will cause a vibration under acceleration. Only the brake rotors will cause a vibration but that won't be limited to acceleration. The most common cause is tight universal joints. A less common cause is a collapsed transmission mount that causes a change in the drive shaft angle. Sagged rear springs can do that too, but the vibration will generally occur while cruising, not just when accelerating.

Start checking the drive line for worn joints or a damaged shaft that may be out of balance.
