Could be as simple as an out of balance wheel/tire, this is the most likely if it's only noticeable above a certain speed, it is worth checking that the lug nuts are tight (70-80 ft/lb for alloy and 100 ft/lb for steel wheels) also, try shaking the wheel side to side (hands on top and push/pull fairly hard) if you can hear any clunking noises or notice movement beyond the little shaking the rest of the car does, there's an issue that it needs to be taken in for and is a safety hazard.

Rear end noise, shaking

Check the rear driveshaft u-joints. Most likely the rear u-joint at the differential is seized/seizing. May here a rotational squeaking at low speeds. If you want to check it yourself. Remove the rear driveshaft and move the u-joint in each direction and check for tightness. Do so with both ends. Let me know how it works out for ya!

1999 silverado rear end shakes at all speeds. put brand new tires n balanced

You should have an alignment on all 4 wheels. Check that the rear axle has not shifted forward or backward on one side. If you have Rear Disc Brakes, have the Hub & Rotor checked for alignment. Does this shaking happen all of the time or just when turning? Does it only happen when you apply the brakes? A Rotor and Hub that is out of alignment will cause shaking. Also check that the Caliper Slide Bolts are lubricated, otherwise the caliper will not operate correctly and the inside of the rotor will wear out faster. This can cause shaking also.

Real wheel shaking wen i turn

Does it shake when turning both directions or just one or the other? It is most likely the clutch packs in the rear end. Especially if you have around 100,000 miles on the truck and have never had a rear end service done.

05 F350 Bad shake from 45mph to about 58 and then dies down around 60. Shakes in the rear end, front end is fine. just rotated and rebalanced all tires. Just started doing this about 6000 miles ago if...

This is either the uni joints or the center bearing if it has a 2 piece tailshaft. Uni joints can be quiet dangerous if they let go. jack the back end up, handbrake off and in 1 hand hold the tailshaft, in the other, hold the diff pinion (input) wriggle them against one another. if there is any movement this needs to be replaced. center bearing- if there is any movement this needs to be replaced.

2002 f250 shake

You have identified the problem when you pulled the drive shaft and the shake was gone. So you know it is between the tranny and the rear end. If it is not the universal joints, then you have a warped drive shaft.
