If only happening at a particular speed, the tires & wheels need to be balanced. If shaking were to occur at other speeds, suspension components, alignment, loose lug nuts, and more can cause the shaking . But at only one speed, and then disappears as you lower or raise that speed is caused by out of balance wheels\tires. Be sure to have them high speed spun balanced as "static" or bubble balancing only balances in one plain. Dynamic balance covers across the tread as well as the running "plane" or front and back of the wheel tire combo. Thanks for your question and be sure to rate this soultion for us. Good luck, Papa

What could cause my car to begin to struggle when i go over 70mph


55 is the speed limit, not 70. however, your timing belt / chain is worn or stretched , your killing your engine, it will get worst, until its replaced.

Has a shake in the front end shakes then stops then shakes again only at hwy speeds around 70 mph


Looseness in the front end or a tread separation in the tire. This is extreme but you get the idea if there is a bulge near the side of the tire even a tiny one

Front end shakes after 58mph just had wheels balanced and was worse after. Used to drive 70mph with minor shakeing


The shaking is comming from your front end not being aligned. Take it to a shop that has the machine to do that task. Hope this helps.

2000 Buick Park Ave. shakes between 55-70mph.


Bearings can definitely do this, even when they have no noticeable play. C/v joints generally show signs of failure when turning at low speeds. If boots are intact, likely they are OK.

Lift the back of your car.With a stable rest and with the two hind wheels hanging, run your car up to the speed where you experienced vibration. have someone take care of the throttle and shifting while you observe the transmission shaft. You may have an imbalanced shaft.
