Default bad vibration

ok so i just got back from getting lunch and i had the worst vibration now. its the worst when im slowing down like 40-20mph.it happens when the trans is in or out of gear, and when its out of gear the shifter handle still rattles. i just replaced the harm.balancer and all those bolts are tight and it ran great until today. since ive bought the car ive been at high speeds on the highway and i had a vibration up at like 90-110. im thinkin im going to start off with replacing the u joints.

Man could be lots of things. Simple thigs to start with are tires rotate/balance, check your brake rotors/ bearings, if they are warped or bearings badit'll do it with little pressure to the brake pedal, could be the rack n pinion, and yes u joints. Also check to see if motor mounts are tight and tranny brace is tight and bushings in good shape. Vibrations are hard to pin point, I am currently trying to find a vib in my 93 LXalso. Good luck.

well the vibration is coming from the rear. i know its not the brakes cuz i know what warped rotors feel like. i know its gotta be the rear or the u joints. im gonna start at the u joints and go from there.
