Shifter shaking problem

Hey guys, the other day I noticed at high speeds and even sometimes at low speeds, my shifter will shake. At low speeds it isn't bad at all but at high speed it shakes so crazy it scares me. I took a look at all the bolts and everything is bolted in properly and tight. Would that be my driveshaft being unbalanced or what could It be? Any suggestions. It's a 94 5.0. Should I just give in and buy a aluminum driveshaft?

It sounds like a bad U-joint in your driveshaft

That or the nuts attaching your trans mount to the crossmember backed out. Check the U-joints and check your trans mount. Also check the engine mounts. At this age, if your rubber mounts are original consider them shot.

I'm going to have to redo my exhaust doing it to because the last owner didn't give enough room for the driveshaft to come out.

You don't have to redo anything, just drop the H pipe out.
