I have just replaced the CV axels and my car shakes while I am driving down the road at aprox 55+ MPH. What is causing this? I was told that it maybe the wheel bearings or the rotors? Help!

If it while braking, yes, it could be the rotors.

Otherwise, check the torque on the axle shaft nuts. They should be around 200 lbs.

Check the wheel balance as well.
