    Thats odd. Same thing happened to me... I found that I had flat spots on my front tires that created the shake in the steering wheel.

    Sure its not warped brake rotors? Do you still have the counterweight on your rear end?

    I just bought my Mustang about a month ago and I'm still learning. I was not aware about a counterweight in the rear.

    If you look at the rear diff you should see a little weight thats on it, im sure its there if the car is fairly stock some ppl remove them to save weight and it can cause a slight vibration.

    I mean that I get full vibrations---everything is shaking---when I get it between 70 and 80...or ill b goin at 110 and itll b good until i let off...There is no reason for it to be shaking so much---I'm gonna check the weight today and ill let u know how that goes---

    The weight wont cause a harsh vibration just a very minor one so I doubt its that but its worth a check.

    possible: wheels need to be balanced / new driveshaft universals. Fairly simple / cheap fixes! how many miles on it?

    Yeah. Be careful about the balance of the tires. The guys at Discount :rockyou: up and now I have flat spots on the sides of my tires!

    Is it more of a vibration then a shake?! If so, it could be the driveshaft universals, considering the amount of miles you have on it. Either way it could need to be done anyways.
