CAR SHAKING

1993 Lexus GS 300

Suspension problem
1993 Lexus GS 300 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 175000 miles

Im having a really bad time with getting my car to stop shaking when driving. It starts after I have driven it for about 30 to 40 minutes sometimes a little less. I have 22 inch rims on it so I know its pretty hard on my suspension but I took it to a shop they told me my upper and lower control arm bushings were bad so I changed out the entire upper and lower control arm on both sides. When I got it back I drove it and the shaking started again they told me the bushing on one of my front radius arms were bad I just wanted to know could bad radius arms cause the car to shake. And what else could it be?

If it only shakes while moving, and doesnt while your sitting at idle, then it can be several things, but I would go to a different shop, and ask them to do a safety inspection on the suspension, because your problem can be, tie rods, tie rod bushings, a slipped belt inside the tire, a bent rim, inner tie rods, sway bar links/bushings, there are just too many things for them semmingly to be guessing, so if you do a safety inspection on the suspension/front. Then they can come up with all the possibilities at once, then you can go from there, either fix them all or address the ones that can cause the shaking, also struts can be bad too.
