Default VIOLENT shaking from font end under acceleration *FIXED!!!*

thanks therealstonecold1970 for confirming my suspisions on the faulty cv halfshaft! that was the problem.. all is well now

What would cause the front end of my 94ssei to shake only under medium to full acceleration... i meen a violent fast side to side shake

No shakes when cruising or light throttle, perfect stoping (no shakes)

Start w/ the tie rods? This just all of a sudden started after getting off the highway. I have checked everything and it all seems in spec (tie rods and ball joints) and all lugs torqued. Even tried my stock wheels/tires

mine did that when my front axles were going out. do you hear any sounds while turning, kinda like a horse galluping. Maybe one of our gearheads will know

If what you have is a bad cv, you'll be able to tell it by accelerating hard (just to make the shake you have) while turning one direction, and then the other. This will tell you which side of the car its on.

Good advise, take a look and feel for andy bumps or odd ridges. With the Bonne'* heavy front end a worn tire can pop its seam.

Is there any problem with the acceleration when it'* shaking, or does it just accelerate at a normal rate?

Don't discount an ignition problem. Coil, plugs or wires. Under load or accelleration, this can make you think you have a more serious problem. You're describing typical ignition symptoms.
