okay guys as u can see from my title its obvious something is shaking...MY steering wheel, and i dont know what it is. i have 94 civic hatch and i just put some ground control and tokico blue shocks on and now all of a sudden my steering wheel starts vibrating when i hit about 40+ miles per hour...now i know my axle is going because its making a slight click when i make left turns but not when im driving normally and its not shaking when i make any turns, so the question is what could possibly be making my steering wheel vibrate vigorously when im driving straight, my main thought is the axle but before i go and get one and that not be the problem i thought would get some feedback from u guys (also is it true that making fast u-turns can assist in destroying your axle)

mine vibrates when u hit about 60 it became worst when i put the rims on ther we went to honda they said most hondas have this vibration and they cant fix it.

maybe a dumb question, but did you get an alignment after you put the springs and shocks on? That might be a little of it if you haven't. Hit any curbs or pot holes or anything (aka damage a rim)? I know when i put on my used rotas i got a lot more vibration but one of the rims is a little bent from my friend hitting a curb before i bought them from him; and my car isn't lowered at all. Also the broken axle is probably the cause of some of it as well.

Another thing may be (and I say this because I used to work at discount tire), your wheels could need balancing. But yeah, I also gotta agree with both of the above as well. Alignment, and the axle.

Your rotors could be warped, so every wheel revolution they skim against the pad causing a tiny jerk only noticable at higher speeds..

Alignment on the car. When you lower a car you throw everything out. You need to balance and rotate the tires as well as do the alignment. I caution you however if you dont have a camber kit, you will just throw it back out of alignment again.
