    Need more detials. Is it the engine that is shaking and misfiring? Throwing a check engine light? How about mods of any kind?

    I'm guessing a wheel/tire issue. Are you in a snowy environment?

    Is it only shaking at higher speeds or just in those gears?

    Possible Cv axle problem?
    does it vibrate ALOT when trying to gain faster?
    if so the cv is shot.

    its probably not the gear but the speed ur at could be....cv joint, possibly just a wheel balance issue too, non-hub centric wheels, flat spot on tires. motor mounts

    I doubt it, I am thinking either unbalanced wheel, or a tire that is about to throw a belt. Or, snow and ice jammed up in wheel throwing it off balance.

    Glad you found it, I figured it was a tire issue, or wheel unbalanced.
