isolating road vibration sources

after finally eliminating wheel balance as a factor (had a dynamic load balance performed), i now see that there were other components to the vibration i was experiencing at 75 - 80. certain types of road seem to induce it while on smooth blacktop, the vibration is non-existent. it is a very slight vibration you can feel through the body and somewhat on the steering wheel. is this indicative of front-end component wear? what would be a likely culprit? i thought about the flex disk, tranny mount and engine mounts, are those possible sources too? at one point i thought that it happened when under load such as on an upgrade but my observations were not conclusive.

any ideas on where to start?
