Can wear in bushings in tranny housing where the CV shafts run cause vibration? on 1999 Toyota Corolla

I have already tried balancing tires and even changing tires and rebalancing. But it still has a shimmy at speeds starting about 62 mph. The tires are not causing the problem but i noticed it seems to have some slop where the CV shaft fits in the transmission on both sides, probably a worn bushing and I was wondering if this will cause the shimmy. Only about 160,000 miles on it. It has the 1.8 liter with automatic tranny.

They all seem to have slop there in the diff bushings as the mileage gets higher. I have seen axles cause vibration but I would look at the engine mounts first.

i think the vibration is probably a minor bend in the wheel.try rotating rim to rear of car and see if that solves problem.if not than your hypothesis should be looked at.rs
