Where are you feeling this "shaking"? The steering wheel or your ***?

Ouch!!!
I'm assuming balanced tires, rim not bent, etc. No strange noises...
Check the driveshaft for loose bolts, bad u-joints. May even be out of balance.
I've read of wheel bearings causing vibration also.
Is this something that occurred suddenly, or has it been going on for awhile?

And did this just start recently?

Jack it up and make sure the driveshaft bolts didn't loosen up...

I had an SN95 that shook when changing gears and it turned out to be my torque converter. Can't remember now if it was more a shake or grind, but either way.. It wasn't overly cheap

Your issue sounds very similar to what my '90 has started doing. Did you ever figure out if it was the u joint or not??

It can't be a converter unless you have an after market auto...the aod/aode are 4 speeds. Check your d/s bolts at the flange, believe they are a 12 mm...

It's a 5 speed...I'm thinking a possible clutch or flywheel..it's only in 5th gear at about 70 it starts to shake

To me that sounds like a tire balance issue.would think if it was flywheel it would do it regardless

Yea a tire was my first thought.. I used to work at a tire store so I jumped to that first had my rims checked for balance then sent them off to get reconditioned and then different tires everything came out perfectly balanced and my U joints are still perfect...I was thinking possible clutch cuz I know it's going bad

Check and see if weights are still on there when you check the ujoints and bolts...

If weights are still on I would pull out and see if you have a grove on the yoke also...takes 5minutes to pull a driveshaft...
