OK a little reality check, 330,000 miles is a lot of miles, granted it is a diesel. but rubber mounts must be inspected, as well as all the frame members for wear . Make sure fuel lines are not taking in air . Injectors are the first thing to replace, particullary if you think they are original. They may be a bear to get out if they are. Rack damper - needs the newer version bolt. Injection pump timing - a lot of things can make this engine vibrate. That said , some vibration is normal. I have noticed my 300SD now vibrates a bit more than she did in her prime, but suspect engine mounts, engine shock damper, and injection pump timing, but since it is only at idle and she is approaching 200K, I kinda equate it to graceful ageing
Kinda like her owner.
