    Does the shudder come through the steering wheel through the whole car?

    The first thing I would check is the wheel balance. you might have thrown a
    wheel balance mass.
    If you take it to a tyre shop they should be able to rebalance all 4 wheels
    for less than $50, it might not solve you problem but it's the least
    expensive place to start.
    From that point on out need to start looking at the suspension components
    such as wheel bearings, ball joints and drive shafts then possibly the
    gearbox which could start to get pricy to fix.

    o ok thanks man..
    ill try the balancing first and then ill check up the other things
    you've mentioned.. the shudder is in the steering and gets quite bad
    when im taking bends at high speed.

    but thanks again man

    I guess it's just that I want to live to be very old, but you wouldn't catch
    me driving a twelve year old car of any description over 75 miles an hour,
    regardless of its condition. you don't mention the mileage on the
    odometer, but I'm guessing it's well over 100K miles.
    But if you've gotta go that fast, do look into the balance and alignment,
    and don't do it on well-worn tires.

    I think it was "mack" <mackerel@dslextreme.com> who stated:

    No? Better stay on the back roads, then.

    If you were driving anywhere on the freeways around Minneapolis or
    Chicago or Phoenix (the ones I'm most familiar with) or any other
    large metropolitan area you'd have a death wish if you drove anything
    less than 75 miles an hour, regardless of the condition. (Unless it
    was at "rush hour" when the freeways can slow to around zero to ten
    miles an hour.)

    If it's shuddering, it should be fixed, of course. But that applies to
    any car regardless of its age . . . .
