e34 Shuddering

This problem is with both the 90 and the 95 E34's... more so the 90.

Under moderate-hard acceleration, the car shudders. Is this a common problem? Where should I start looking... i was thinking it would be related to the driveshaft damper (guibo?) or hanger bearing maybe..

Not all have a guibo, my 90 535i auto did not have a guibo, I had the shudder which was only eliminated by replacing the hanger bearing.

I don't see a guibo.. where are they usually located? I see the hanger bearing which is pretty much right behind the tranny.

PS now that i've eliminated other vibration problems (wheel replaced (bent), balanced, and steering box replaced), this shudder i am getting only around 60km/h (55-65). How much of a pain is it to replace that hanger bearing?
