Hello

1st check all the engine fluids, oil coolant, power steering and brakes

and check the condition of the drive belt too

I'd also for worn drive shaft joints - typically these won't produce any vibration unless badly damaged but they can be noisy or 'clonk' for a long time beforehand, turn the steering to full lock and look at the drive-shaft rubber boot there should be no rips or tears in it and the suspension should be clean and dry of any grease. If you reverse at a reasonable speed with the steering on full lock a worn joint will 'click'.
