Default Shaking power train

Iíve been trying to figure out a problem with a 2003 PT cruiser that started happening about 6 months ago, while the vehicle slow down the whole power train shakes and the faster you slow down the harder it shake, I figured It must be the motor mount so I changed two of them noticing that the rubber was pretty worn, but the shaking never went away, at that point I put the car on stands to give it a closer look and I noticed that if I use one hand to spin the tire the whole power train shakes when I stop the tire with my hand.
If anyone has had this problem I would like to hear what their solution was to fix it, thanx.

Welcome to the forums.
Nearly impossible over the internet, but a guess is the u-joints in the drivetrain. I would bet a mechanic could nail it down on a lift in a few minutes.

Thanks for your reply, but what do you mean exactly the axle u-joint, cv joint or ball joint ?
