Exclamation The Vibration Back Again

so i bought my 04 v6 automatic transmission more than six months ago, and started to have a vibration when i accelerate, and while i posted a thread here and some of you guys gave me a good ideas for what it could be, the vibration was already gone.
last month i had the same vibration back, when i accelerate it will come between 30-40 mph and once the transmission shifts it will just disappear, it happens from time to time but always between 30-40, after i checked the tires, inspected the driveshaft everything is normal, after i changed the spark plugs and wires, fuel filter, air filter and the transmission filter, the vibration gone for few days and start to come back again.
i was talking to one of my friends and he told me that this is a common problem with fords, and the cause is the torque converter and he sent me ford tsb for that issue, the tsb is describing the vibration exactly the one i have.
just wanted to know if anyone had the same problem before? is it really the torque converter?
thanks in advance

I had that same problem in my 2000 v6. It just had a shorter speed range that it would do it. From 40-45 mph. I never figured out what it was though. The trans wasn't the strongest to begin with in that car anyway.

Could be the rear u-joints. Mine shakes once I hit 40ish. Took it to a transmission shop one day and they did a diagnosis and came up with that. Oh and they also wanted to bend me over to rebuild my transmission but yeah check your u-joints

Though my mechanic inspected the driveshaft before but he said its the u joint also, I talked to him yesterday and he doesn't believe it's the converter, I will change the u joint as its easier and cheaper than the converter.
