Grinding sound and vibration in 92 Ford Taurus. No clue

I have a 92 Ford Taurus LS. Had it for years now, did a complete replacement on the CV joints, passenger and driver side. New bearings and everything last year, recently replaced the water pump. Well I'm getting a grinding vibration that I can feel thru the gas pedal and steering wheel on the highway, and sometimes on the main roads. It comes and goes every few mins or so. and if I jolt the wheel to the left a bit it goes away but comes right back when I straighten the car. I did a quick inspection took the wheels off couldn't see any damage, and the brake pads are fine. Anyone have any idea's? I'm thinking the differential... Anyone have any thoughts?
Thanks.
