Default LX470 Vibration Trouble...Help!

Hello,

Whenever I'm stopped at a stoplight and on drive, I can feel vibrations going through the entire vehicle, and trims start squeaking and I can even see the seats vibrate. It's been really frustrating. As soon as I step on the gas, this vibration goes away. Does anyone know what the root of this problem may be? I can hear the vibrations traveling through the hood of the car and resonating throughout the vehicle. All help will be greatly appreciated.

check engine light on? if so, have it checked out, could be a misfire at idle... if not, most likely worn motor mounts not absorbing the engine vibration...

Check engine light is not on. Typically, how much would the labor run for motor mounts?
