For some knowage about the car it is a 2006 Honda Civic coupe ex. Basically perfect shape new transmission on it, but when I get on the highway and go around 60 it starts to shake. I was told it was balance but I'm not sure, I know I also need an alinement on my tires too.

Is it a shake or a rattle?

The alignment will shake the car as your tow could be bad and your front tires steer towards or away from each other so they try to plow the road in a sense. This will unevenly wear the tires so it will take a long time to wear them flat again if you ever do so you might always have that shake. My tires were ran with a bad alignment for about 5k miles (bought new) and after the alignment and about 10k miles my truck still shakes at certain speeds.

I don't know if it's so big of a problem with cars, but I know trucks get the "death wobble" usually due to loose steering components.



You could always get the tires re balanced too, just because it was done doesn't mean it was done right. They might not have cleaned the inside of the wheel before putting weights on (if they used the sticky type weights) so you could've thrown one off while driving, or if they are mounted on the outside people lose them all the time if they curb their wheel.

If you hit a big pot hole you could've also minorly bent the wheel so it's no longer a perfect circle.





If it's a rattle that's more hard to track down as it could be anything from exhaust parts to a socket in your door panel or a broken clip on one of your interior trim pieces. The biggest rattle in my truck was the glove box and the center console because it was missing the little rubber bumpers so I always had that annoying plastic on plastic sound.

It's more of a shake, I can feel it the steering wheel a good bit. I'm not sure if it's related but when I'm in drive but idle it shakes as well but not bad just noticeable. Could be related just intensafied when driving at higher speeds but unsure?

Likely your tires are out of balance if it only happens at high speeds.

that's a tough one but it mostly has to do with your tires
