Question about Cars & Trucks
At about 55-60 mph everything vibrates pretty bad. i know the tires need to be balanced. but how do i balance the drive shaft? what else would cause this?
If you know the tires need to be balanced why don't you start with that. the driveshaft will need to be brought to a machine shop that will be able to balance for you. May not be a bad idea to check the u-joint as well.

SOURCE: wheel vibrations at 75+ mph
Most computer controlled tire balancing machines which are in use today only balance tires to between 65/70 miles an hour. To get them balanced to a higher speed you might want to call a few auto performance shops and see if they balance tires to a higher speed. At higher speeds it takes very little in the way of an off balanced tire to really set up a vibration so shake.

Find a tire shop that has a HUNTER GSP 9700 road force balancer. this puts a load on the tire and will find a bad tire, or rim, and it will tell the operator where the tire should be orientated on the wheel for best run out. If its a tire/wheel problem this will find it. Call a high end tire store or dealer and ask if they have one.
