I've had a highway shake from around 75mph+ for 2-3 years now. It started completely out of the blue, was on the highway one day and suddenly had a shake. Since then I've made numerous part changes along the way that have made no difference. New wheel bearings, tie rod ends, different set of coilovers (may have even started before the prior set of coilovers as well), different wheels, more than one set of tires, and adjustable sway bar end links. All but the bearings and rod ends were just modifications along the course of time. Subframe is tight, no play found in the front control arm bushings (SuperPro ALK handles the rear mounting point), engine and trans mounts upgraded to Vibratecnics last year. No play at all when the wheel is lifted off ground and shaken and can't feel any play in the axle joints. It's super annoying since I ride the PA Turnpike often which has a 70mph speed limit and traffic that moves closer to 80. Thinking of replacing the driveshafts next in case it is the inner CV joint (even though it feels fine by hand). Car drives totally fine and smooth up til mid 70's. I would LOVE to get this solved. I plan on trying the replacement driveshafts soon, will report back if any change.

Edit-Forgot to add I also changed out the ball joints with SuperPro roll center correcting units when I did the bearings and rod ends

I have similar problems with my car.
I am suspecting worn balljoint or worn wheel bearing.
Also, can a warped rotor cause such vibration?

I am experiencing the same issue on my car. My commute is 30 miles (60 each way) all highway and I usually set the cruise 75-80 and my steering wheel shakes pretty much constantly. A mild vibration is felt throughout the whole car. It is rock solid under 70mph and over 85ish is goes away again. My car was in need of an alignment after I purchased new tires (continental extreme contact DWS 06), but I procrastinated and let it go and I think I wore my tires unevenly. I just recently had an alignment done and was really looking forward to the issue going away. Unfortunately, it is still present at 70-80mph. I have rotated the tires with no change. I have gotten used to the shaking and thought it will go away with new tires, as it wasn't an issue with the previous stock Dunlops. I never thought this was an issue our cars could have? I haven't tried to replace any major parts, my car is completely stock. I am planning to upgrade the brake system this year with a ECS tuning upgrade kit and was thinking of maybe a rear sway bar to help with understeer. I am definitely interested in this thread and will continue to follow this to see if the front sway bar or bushings helps with your cars. Thanks for posting and good luck with your fix.
