    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    x2. Search the wheels forum for balance and shaking or vibration. This comes up a lot.

    i agree with the unbalanaced wheels. also if you have hit a bad pot hole or had it off-road, you might need a realignment. i had this same problem on a 89 toy pickup when i went about 60mph. turned out to be a bad upper control arm.

    I was getting some bad vibes at those speeds aswell, but it started between 15 and 20 MPH and just got worse...I knew my wheels were good so I took it in and it ended up being the U-Joints in my Drive Shaft went bad...along with the Carrier Bearing! Do you hear a squeaking when accelerating or when its under torque from 0 to 15 MPH?

    Other than that, like posted above, you probably need your wheels balanced :)

    There is no squeaking sounds, it shakes when i hit in the 50 or 60 mph, Was it expensive to get all those things fixed for your ride???

    HEY, I'm talkin' to you man, why did you steal my username ?? :D

    Is it "I really can go 80" or did you mean "I really can't go 80"

    OK seriously, what tires you running ? & have you ever let go of the wheel when it starts shimmying to see if its pulling left or right? Try doing this when you hit the magic speed that starts this shit, maintain the speed(but don't accelerate) let go & see if it pulls to one side or another as I'm sure you've been told do the easy shit first i.e; check tires for abnormal wear,tire pressure, rotate tires & if these all check out start thinking about loose/worn tie rod ends, ball joints & other related steering/suspension components....:cool:

    OH YEAH one more thing is it stock or is it lifted?
