    ok.. when i'm on the freeway and i'm trying to accelerate it still does, but it shakes like no other.. the whole car.. it does it from 60- 75 mph.. after that it quits.. what could be the problem?? could it be a motor mount?? or are the tire off balance? [​IMG]

    What make/model? My 91 accord had a bad lower ball joint and it shook a lot around highway so I never took it over 60 so I dont know if it would smooth out. I am replacing the ball joints tomorrow afternoon and will let you know if it worked. Might be of some help.

    Tire balance?
    Wheel bearings?
    Axle balance?

    i would check the axles first. if you can take them out, check to see if they grind. could be anything from dirt to out of balance wheels.
