560sel vibration at low speeds.

i am back with my 560sel 1990 model. at idle and lower speeds under 40mph i get a shaking or vibration in the car on acceleration. after i release the pedal it stops and is not present at higher speeds. so is this old motor mounts?

I had the same problem with my 1990 420 SEL, I replaced the motor mounts 171,000 and the problem is gone. After they were replaced the engine came up about an inch! They definitley were toast.
