I suspect a drive shaft problem also. I had a car that had a bad rear universal joint yoke on the drive shaft that caused the bearing cup to rotate which caused a vibration starting at around 45 mph. The problem was hard to diagnose because the u-joint was nice and tight but upon cafeful inspection with the drive shaft off of the vehicle, you could see the cup turning as the u-joint was moved back and forth.

As far as the rough ride, how do your shocks look? I don't know about your chassis but many manufacturers used very cheap shocks there for a while. Probably still do.

My 2001 HR Endeavor came with Monroe's. They are low end but gave a good ride for 40,000 miles. Why not replace them with Monroe's again. Most go with Blistein or Koni. for 3 times the money. With eight shocks I can't see that much difference. Any thoughts on that?

An obvious question (but too late): Did it ride like that when you test drove it? Did you ask the dealer or private party you bought it from what the problem was?
