Did do some more research and perhaps it's the front engine mount - it's on the original I believe.
My car (98 tip) needs the engine mount replaced as well I believe but my symptoms only occur if I accelerate while turning sharp at medium speeds. It almost feels like a tire is rubbing or losing traction and when I let off the throttle it's gone. Happens usually when I turn right from what I can remember. During normal driving I don't notice anything but it seems consistent when I push the car in a hard right turn I get the rumble.

Noises I had coasting on bumpy roads at lower speeds were the trailing arms and sway bar end links that were worn. Sounded like what some other people described as a bolt in a cardboard box being shaken around in the back.
