My 2008 MKZ AWD has a low-speed shudder between 10-30mph. Smoothes out at highway/cruising speeds. I've replaced all 4 brakes (Calipers, rotors, and ceramic pads), RH axle shaft (Boot was torn), all 4 tires, both outer tie rod ends. Came on fairly suddenly which makes me think something may have broken somewhere. At a loss and tired of throwing money at it. Car has about 180k miles. Any ideas would be helpful.

So, for anyone experiencing the same issue, it turns out this is caused by a bad driveshaft center support bearing. The bearing itself doesn't seem to be replaceable by itself, so the entire driveshaft will need to be replaced. New from Ford, it is about $850. Remanufactured is between $400-$500. Ford quoted a "couple" hours labor for those of you who don't do their own work. Just sharing as a service for others.
