Replace engine and transmission mounts -- a bad transmission mount will cause a thumping or drumming vibration on acceleration due to excessive up and down movement of the transmission.

I would also check the rubber mount for the driveshaft center bearing if you have one, as well as for play in the universal joints in the driveshaft.
