Loud noise and vibration when car shifts into overdrive gear

Occasionally when my car shifts into overdrive, there is a loud sound and vibration that you can feel throughout the car. The vibration is very noticeable but only happens as it shifts into the gear. Normally the car also has a vibration at lower rpms in 4th-5th gear. Gears 1-3 shift quickly and smoothly though. If anyone can tell me why my car is doing this I would appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

P.S. I plan on changing my ATF and filter as soon as I can to see if this fixes the problem.

My car had a vibration at stops and slow speeds ended up being trans and engine mounts. You could check those out see how they look. As for the 4th to 5th gear shift? We only have 4 gears in the 4R70W auto trans
