So far me and my buddy have searched sr20forum and the dash. The car shakes violently from the front end around 60mph and up. So far these are the things we checked.
Wheel bearings
tie rods
tires/wheels
new control arm and checked the other
all bushings
brakes
motor mounts
and checked all the front end/subframe/crossmember hardware
new suspension/strut mounts
He took it to a shop and had an alignment done. The dude said that one of the outer tie rods was a little bad-but there is no front to back movement. The rack seems to be leaking ps fluid by the inner tie rod boot. Also the camber on the right side -1.9, left side -0.6 for some reason? The previous owner obviously hit something as one the pass. side the fender weas replaced, the inner tie rob is bent slightly. We really dont want to have to buy a rack or new axles if that is not the problem you know?

Did you have the tires balanced? It sounds like a tire issue. What does the tread of all the tires look like? If you look at it and it is all straight and then you have a wavy/different looking tread pattern in a section it could be a broken belt.

Well the only thing that hasn't been replaced is the inner tie rods, change them or the rack.

Still workig on it cuz I am a bit broke but realized that one of my axles had a weight And the other didn't so I think that's my problem. Ordered remanufactured one which I'll get tomorrow and I'll decently post what the final result is

Axle(s) is what I was leaning towards. My co-work once had a problem kind of like that. He said the inner joints of the axle were bad. Boot is self wasn't ripped. So, you couldn't see it. But, after he replaced the axle. Problem went away.

Not sure of axle having a weight on it???

Let us know what it is?

yea It feels like an unbalanced tire but isn't. I have replace almost every thing. I have read on the forum that people have problems with axles that don't have the counter weight in them. my driver side doesn't but my pass. does. I know you can get them form O' reilly auto parts for $60. I had to order them. I will most likely putting it in tonight and will let you know the out come.

Your tires arent too worn out are they? One of them could have a broken cord or belt which causes all kinds of vibrations.

I had a B13 that had a vibration under hard accel and it ended up being the inner joint on the axle. I replaced both axles and problem was gone.
