i have a 2000 bonneville sle with 90K miles and in the last three years it has began to shake on and off at high speeds ranging from 60 to 70 mph. I have changed hubs axles and tires. Dont seem to feel it in the steering more on the gas pedal and the door panels. any idea where to go from here?

    Are you experiences any unusual tire wear on any or both front tires? If so pay particular the suspension bushings, shocks and sway bar, and control arm bushings on that side of the car. Has an alignment shop checked the alignment and condition of the suspension and steering bushings?

    I had tires changed 2 years ago and an alighment done at that time. They told me there was a little loose in the steering shaft as you probably know this defect. Also had the shocks replaced on all 4 wheels last year. The problem still persist. Any advice on my next move?
