How about the spare tire in the trunk. Is anything loose back there. Or take it to a mechanic and have it checked out

Ya I will be going macanic just trying get a few tips first as macanics like to leave a hole in my pocket ha I went to on and he told me stabilizer bar I think is called but ended up not been tat the shaking I think might be wheel balancing as far as I am reading from net but the noise in back wheel a lot of people having same kinda prob but not getting many answers hoping some one out ter might had same prob tat I can get tips from before going macanic

I had the same problem with my Avensis:When I was driving up to 85km/h everything was ok,then when I reach speed 90km/h toyota started to shake until 95-100km/h and this was only if a push the accelerator.After 100 km/h everything was ok. I went to my mechanic and after long thinking he discovered that the problem was in drive axle. With my toyota now is everthing ok. My advise is to check drive axle. please give me feedback about this problem. Regards
