High speed vibrations?
I own a '95 Celica GT with 90k miles and have been having a lot of issues lately....This one has to deal with high speed vibrations. I've always had a lot of vibration on the steering wheel and gas pedal at speeds in excess of 60 mph. I thought it was just the tires being out of balance. I was planning on getting new wheels/tires soon anyway though, so I didn't worry about it. Well, after gettting new wheels/tires (that came balanced) the problem did not resolve itself. What else could be causing the vibrational issues?

If it is on acceleration then it can be your cv shafts or output shaft on your transmission. If it is vibrating with or without acceleration then it can be bushings or tie rods. there is also a recall:

both of the previous answers could be right.take the car to a out of the way road were you won't incounter a lot of trafic and get it up to speed and pop into neutral and if you feel on wheel but not on the pedals I would say cvc joint,or you can turn the wheel one way or the other all the way at a stop and give it some serious gas and if you hear clicking sounds it is a cvc joint.if you think you hear it you probably don't it is always been real noticable every time that I've done this.I hope this helps.
