X5 shudder

Hi all, I have a 2001 X5 and when I first accelerate the car has a shudder or chatter that feels as though it's coming from the drivetrain. If you are resting your right arm on the center armrest you can feel the shudder right beneath you. Any ideas as to the problem and better yet, any solutions?

X5 Shudder

Checked both the front and rear driveshaft guibos. Both seem to be in excellent condition. There is a little bit of play in the carrier bearing, but I assume that's normal due to the rubber encasement. Any other ideas or should the carrier bearing not have any movement at all?
