Please help ASAP.

Ok the story is, about 2hours ago i was going out to pick up my gf and i use this dirt road, it has been raining for a lil bit earlier today..i didn't know the road would be that muddy..anyway it was downhill so i got to the bottom of the hill and got stuck..after 10mins of struggle i got out..mud flew everywhere..anyway now when i got to 50mph and above the entire car shake badly..but nothing happen under 50mph..the rain has washed most of the mud off because it still raining out..but i dunno what happen..cuz usually if i get to 80mph the steering wheel shakes a bit..but today when going above 50mph the whole car shake visciously..please help ASAP.. thanks

yeah i hope that's the case..i figure it was out of alignment along time ago..cuz when i get to 80mph the steering wheel shake..i guess tonight i just totally put it out..but the steering wheel doesn't curve to the right or to the left..it curve like maybe 10-15degress..to the left..hope that's the problem, if it is then i dont' feel to bad..

I bet you have mud inside your rim. Check that.

i bet it's your alignment, b/c my car drives smooth up to 125 with no shaking, i don't think a celica should shake at all doing 80, sucks man, but hopefully it's not too serious thumbsup

i would say either mud in tires, or you threw some weights off the rim when you were trying to get out...

problem solved..went to Sears today and they found out some of my front left camber was loose both left and right toe was loose..actually all four toe were loose so they tighten all of it..i got an alignment and all four wheel balance..well at first they only balance two of the front wheels..and the shaking was still there, so went back and they balance all 4 wheels..free balance two in the back..everything is cool now...i can go as fast as i want without shaking or anything..cost $75.97 total..bastard...Sears charge $59.99 for alignment and $7.99 for balance each tire. GoodYear only charge $45.00for alignment and $8 or 10 for balance..i would have waited to get them but i use the highway everyday to go to work..i didn't want to wait for appointment and didn't want to live with the feeling of the tires falling off because it shake so bad..

THANKS FOR ALL THE INPUT..MADE ME FEEL BETTA THAT NOTHING WORSE HAD HAPPEN..TAKE IT FROM ME, NO MATTER HOW LIGHT IT RAIN, NEVER NEVER NEVER GO INTO DIRT ROAD..I LEARN IT THE HARD WAY.. thumbsup
