I couldn't say - and it's entirely possible you'll be just fine. I'm just highlighting that if you've been observing visible and constant vibration - you should take steps to mitigate that if you can. Predicting where failure will occur and what symptom will materialize is a science of its own and where I work we have people who make careers out of that, so I couldn't begin to guess. The HDD is the obvious first choice - but in reality - it could materialize elsewhere. Again - I don't know exactly what you're seeing - so I was trying to answer your general question.

Just do yourself a favor and get a thick piece of foam rubber for the iMac to sit on for a while.
