When I drive fast, 70- 80mph, car starts shaking too much. Everything inside the car shakes a bit, coins jingle, soda can in cup holder shakes incredibly. The steering wheel shake is almost imperceptible, but constant. When I drive 20-40mph, if the roads are perfect, hardly any shakes. But on average roads, (fwys in so. Calif.) Car shakes a bit, all the time, and gives me headaches. So I can't drive my minivan to work, because it gives me headaches. Also, when I drive, I feel every flaw on the road too much. Any ideas? Someone suggested that I should replace the axles. I had the shocks and struts replaced, and four new tires.

It sounds like you need to get your vehicle's suspension aligned. This usually cost around $50 to do an alignment in front and rear. Have you noticed if your tires are wearing fast or are there any "flat spots" on the tires? Tires look like they are leaning in or out slightly? Steering wheel have loose play or pull to one side of road? These could all be signs of needing alignment.
