02 cc has a vibration @ 40 to 55mph?

Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could help me figure out what the heck is causing this vibration that starts around 40mph and fades a little after 50mph? It shakes the tuck enough to cause any image in the rear view mirror to distort. There is no noise like a squeak or grind like a bad u-joint. Ive heard that carrier bearings do go bad. There is some play in the carrier, is there supposed be? My truck has 123k. All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

About a month ago the truck would shake whenever I start off from a light or stop sign but that went away.

Just had my second carrier bearing go out, a slight vibration and a low howling noise, first was a rubbing sound on tight turns. Their cheap enough to swap out and hopefully its your problem.

Should I do the u-joints @ the same time since the drive shaft will be out?
