I have a serious wobble or shake which ever you would call it. It only happens after driving for several hours. Normaly happens about 200-300 miles into my 600 mile trip at interstate speeds. Continues during deceloration in gear or out of gear. Usually occurs about 25-50 miles after my mid way gas fill up. Wheels have been rotated and ballanced recently. Passenger side drive shaft makes a slight clatter in right hand turns.

It strange how this only starts ocurring 2/300 miles into a trip?? Could be the splines on driveshaft giving out? But I would expect you to hear this from the outset. There is a TSB about this CV joint. Have your local dealer take a look and ask about the TSB. You may get some $$ off the cost and he will be able to better inform you of the problem after taking a look?
