Default Rear end shake

Hey, new guy here. I don't have a Ranger or B-Series, but I do have Ford's older B-Series counterpart. 1979 Ford Courier, 2.3L/5-spd. I have had a bad rear end shake since I bought the truck nearly three years ago, so I'm sure it existed well before then. It only happens around 60-70 mph, and there is also a kind of buzzing/humming sound whenever I'm coasting to a stop in neutral. I have:

  • Replaced and balanced the tires several times
  • Rotated the tires several times
  • Replaced all four wheel bearings
  • Replaced steering linkage
  • Replaced front suspension
  • Balanced driveshaft twice
  • Replaced driveshaft center bearing
  • Replaced all three U-joints
  • Checked rear wheel lateral and radial runout
  • Had the front end aligned three or four times
  • Checked engine and trans. mounts
And yet the issue persists. Any opinions or help would be greatly appreciated as I am stumped and this problem is driving me bonkers!
