Unhappy 90 AWD Astro Vibration and clicking while turning

My 90 AWD Astro vibrates/shudders at the 43 mph mark, consistently. If I release the gas pedal on a down hill the vibrations stop, upon accelerating the vibration comes back. Again, only above 43mph. The second problem is a clicking like sound when I turn sharply in either direction. Almost sound like axles on a front wheel drive car. No clicking when Im driving straight.

Sounds like a CV joint to me.

Second that; and an AWD Astro is FWD so it has cv's up front (also has RWD, of course).

Question

CV Joint would cause the vibration or the clicking?

Yes, both. Clicking is classic symptom of failing joint.
