Have checked the u-joints and balance on the drive shaft. Every time whether going uphill or a small upgrade it vibrates. The mounts are in good shape too.

Hello,

This could be an issue with either your wheel bearings or a tire that is out of balance. To check and see if your wheel bearing are going out, pick a wheel that you want to check and jack your car up like you are going to change that tire. Then, with your vehicle securely positioned, I have included a link below for how to do this if you are unsure, grab the tire and push the top of the wheel towards the vehicle and then the bottom of the wheel away from the vehicle. There should be little to no play at all. If there is then the wheel bearing is bad and needs to be replaced. I have included a couple of links below for you to go to down below:

Please go through these guides and get back to us with what you are able to find out.

Thanks,

Have tried that too, this feels more like in the drive train more than anything else.
