Question about 2004 Ford F150
Loosen off the torque converter to flex plate bolts
pull the torque converter back towards the box and then refit it doing up the bolts equally and diagonally
It is possible that the centre of the torque converter was not properly placed in the spigot in the end of the crank shaft

Hello Carl, Yes, I have seen this. New torque converters are balanced before they leave the factory. I think yours slipped past Quality Control. Did they replace the flex plate at the same time? Flex plates are also balanced. Maybe that is your vibration. Either way, the repair shop should redo the job right for free. Good luck. Let us know.

SOURCE: vibration at 45 mph.
first, if the milage is high it could be a cv halfshaft even if the boots are not split. if the tires are new and no rims are bent, make sure there is no fix -a- flat in the tires, (liquid will not balance) and cause a severe vibration. i would suggest you take it back to your shop and have them put it on a lift, raise up the front wheels under the outer part of the lower control arm where the front is not hanging down too far and start the vehicle. run it up to 45mph to 60mph and have them feel in the drivetrain for vibrations and shakes.if it is felt with the car this way the vibration is in the drivtrain. inner cv's or in the transmission. thanks and let me know what you find out.

if you drive it to much you will cause it to burn up, but to check the fluid level drive some to warm up( engine temp should be about half way (and you should reach 50mph) the park with it running(has to be running) and pull the tranny dipstick to check fluid level
if the trans and engine are cold it wont read the correct level
it will slip if the fluid is low

That kind of vibration generally can be associated with a binding universal joint. Sometimes you can see a bit of rust around the seals, sometimes not. The "shake" test is generally valid only with vehicle off the ground and trans in neutral, but sometimes the bearings are fused with rust and do not move.If "eyeball" inspection reveals nothing , remove the driveshaft (s) and physically move joints. If overly loose or binding they are bad. If after complete inspection you still come up with nothing then it's time to look at other "oddball" things.
