Try to localize the problem while driving. If you can tell what side or area the shake is coming from, it'll help determine whats wrong. It could be caused by worn wheel bearings, worn ball joints, a tire out of balance, worn tie rod ends and the list goes on. Figure out where its coming from and if its constant or only through a certain speed range and get back to me. Knowing these little things can really help pinpoint whats going on. You could also check your bearings by pulling on the tire and seeing if there is excessive movement. Also you can A) Visually inspect the balljoint for tears in the rubber boot, grease leakage or lack of grease in the ball joint. B) Take the wheel off and check for loose or damaged brake calipers (this has been known to cause a shake/vibration). C) Try to visually see if the rotor is warped at all. This is hard to do but if its really bad, you should be able to see it when you spin the rotor. Like I said figure out where and when it does this and reply back to me and I'll be able to help you more. Its a process of elimination but the problem can be found. Get back to me and I'll be more then happy to help you resolve the problem.
