  1. Hey guys, So I have a 2001 lexus GS300 with 125K on the clock. Just a while ago I had to replace the passenger side ball joint. The car was shaking and clunking pretty bad so I replaced the ball joint, remachined the rotors and changed the pads. The car was back up to normal and driving smooth as butter. Then about 1 month later it started to shake again. It shakes on acceleration but eventually stops when you get to a constant speed. It also shakes when you brake. I have new bf goodridge on them that pomps tire's put on and they rebalanced them twice all ready and it took me 2 freaken hours just to have them balance it, thats from the time the took the tires off to the time they put it back on only 3 hours or so total. Anyways I took it to a mechanic's shop and they didn't know what it was. They checked everything, said everything look good and felt tight. Jack her up and let it free spin on the jacks and didn't notice and vibration or wobbling of the tires. They also test drove it and said theres was a problem. But no noise or anything that they can physically see. All they said was maybe to replace the brakes. But brakes don't cause wobbling on accelerations. They said just keep driving it until it gets worse but I'm getting sick of it. Any ideas? Should I just take it into the Toyota dealer and have them check it out? or Go to a place that does suspension work?
