Vibrating W126s ...

We have 2 126s - the 300SE and 280SE.

Funny thing is that we have new wheels & tyres. Got them on-wheel (not to mention off wheel) balanced. YET we feel the vibration at sporadic speeds. Not necessarily at precisely 120 (km/h) or 140. It could be 110 or 140 sometimes.

I know the 300SE irons out the vibration at about 160, but feels a little shaky at 140 at times.

Other than going in for more balancing acts, drive shafts mentioned as possibility.

Could there be some other things we ought to look at?
