The shakes

Our 2001 Chrysler minivan shakes when accelerating above 40 mph. It does it intermittently and it feels like its coming from the front end.

You MAY have a tire separation beginning.

Move the suspect to a different location and see if the shaking relocates with it.

CV Joints.

Tire and wheel related vibrations would be there all the time, not just when accelerating.
