1998 Explorer v8 AWD 4 door shimmy at 40 mph

1998 Explorer v8 AWD 4 door

When we are getting on the gas up towards hwy speeds it has a vibration at 40 mph. It lasts longer with slower acceleration and goes away faster if you are on the gas more. Ideas??

My dad's f150 used to shimmy when the tranny shifted at around 35-40 mph and he changed the fluid and filter in the tranny and the problem went away after that. It might be a similar issue. Good luck though.
