What do you mean by shake? A vibration or a violent shake? Check your motor mounts as that would be the first thing I'd check
If at first you don't succeed, chances are, you are using too small of a cheater bar

Read my disclaimer in my sig though.

On some vehicles you can check motor mounts by brake reving the engine, dont try to break the tires loose just blip the throttle several times. Open the hood start engine put in drive hold brake and blip the throttle.watch the engine for excessive movement. Then put trans in reverse and try again. As a general rule your looking for more than a couple inches,if they are bad it SHOULD be obvious.

rileyjr16, based my suggestion on the u-joints on the point the op made about shakes under load. Bad u-joints can present with several symptoms and one of them is exposed only under load. Maybe bad joints or or not lined up if a two piece shaft and especialy now that we know u-joints were replaced recently, all the more reason to double check them.

it was doing that before the u joints .. they were replaced because one failed .. and its almost like a wobble than a vibration

It doesn't shake when you are in neutral or park? You can rev the engine in park and no shake? If so, that rules out your engine.
You had a u joint fail? which one? And did you replace all of them on both front and rear shafts?
I would check them all first. A bad u joint can be rough under acceleration, and smooth out while coasting.Mark

Can you duplicate the shake while standing still. By that I mean are you able to put it in drive and while holding the brakes then put a load on the motor and get it to do it?
