    Unhappy The Xc Is Sick, And the doc's at Swedish Motors are stumped . . .

    i was hoping not have to post this but i need more input. so here it goes.

    i was working last Wednesday and took a back route to my destination.
    along the way theres a hill that offers some good butterflies if one goes fast enough.
    so i pushed the speed to around 85ish and went over said hill.
    when the car went over to the other side and i started to slow down, it was shaking horribly, ie, the whole car was shaking.
    i didn't bottom it out or jump it for those wondering.

    anyway what i know isn't the culprit are the following:
    struts and assorted parts, control arms, tie rods, front axles, engine mounts, harmonic balancer.

    what the guys at Swedish think it might be:
    prop shaft, wheel and/or tire.

    as of about 4 this afternoon they were going to pull the driveshaft and see if it is causing the vibration due to becoming unbalanced somehow.
    they were also going to try rotating the tires and mounting some different ones to see what happens with those.

    what do yall think? scrap it out and get another? the xc has a gremlin? it's cursed?

    any input would be helpful
