Things that go wrong on this propshaft:
Centre bearing. A bearing mounted in a rubber housing in the centre of the vehicle. Inspect the rubber for cracking and tearing. Replace if worn. The bearing itself rarely wears out before the rubber mount.
Universal joints - there are 3, one at the differential in the rear of the car, one at the center bearing and one at the transmission in the front of the car. When worn you will hear a distinct metal "clunk" when taking up drive on pull-away. Check by gripping the shaft either side of the joint and twisting eah side in opposite directions. There should be absolutely no play in the joint. Replace if worn.
Whenever a joint is replaced it is nescesary to have the shaft balanced again.

Try to rev the engine while at neutral if you get the same vibration to pinpoint if its from the engine or the drive shafts. If the issue occurs at a certain rev it may likely be the variable valve unit. Check if possible if you can get errors from the computer.

Gm has had issues with the steering colomn shafts and they get dry and cause this type of thud and vibration. Usually the mechanic just pumps the shaft full of grease to quite it down and that helps for a while. Have them check the sterring shaft for this condition as well as the ball joints. This condition is worse in trucks but it can be found in most GM cars as well over time.

have you checked your calipers? They may be sticking putting lots of strain onto the drive shaft causing it to vibrate.

With all the recent snow and grit on the roads you may have some caught in the mechanism meaning it cant release.

Just a small thought to start to determine the problem.

90km/hr and above creates a strong vibration from the rear. pls what could be the cause of this and pls what could be the solution. thanks.

Sounds like a tyre problem. Visually check rear tyres for tread depths and run your hands over the flat circumference of the tyre and feel for bulges or bumps. If ok then they probably require balancing, check to see if any of the lead weights have fell off recently!

Engine vibration coming down to first gear

Sounds like outer carrier axel bearing problem. Safety hazard exist. It could lockdown and damage your brake components. Investigate soon. Change both CV axels when you replace the bearings. You will be money and time ahead.

Brake pedal vibration

Sounds like sticky caliper for one reason or another which has probably warped rotor(s). When that vibration occurs & you pull over to stop it, carefully touch rim to see if hot, or hotter than other side, which is a good indicator to tell you which one is sticking. Don't just change one though, do both.
that is provided it's just not a case of lubricating sliders etc, to get calipers moving freely.
