I was looking around for answers to your problem...all I can find is that if your car has newer wheels they may need a more precise balance. This simply means that you may seek out a tire shop that has a newer balancing machine that measures to the nearest gram. (?) (I figured they all do this...**shoulder shrug**)

I'm not all that concerned with that kind of stuff...but that's all I've found so far. I'll keep looking.

Sorry I can't be more help.

could it be the propshaft? these have joints that may seize slightly and will cause a vibration that is pretty extreme.
