Hi,my name is mike and I will assist you with your question.
Does the shaking appear to come from the back or the front of the vehicle,or both?
Also does it happen more on one side left or right?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Guess front the front but through the whe of the car very violent
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
The issue that you are describing is consistent with a failed joint of the lower ball joint. The ball joints need to be checked as a first step and when they are checked they need to be checked with a dial indicator as the boots may appear fine but the joint is not.

Hi we checked those is it possible could be drive shaft or Dmf
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
If the ball joints have been eliminated the only other part that will cause this type of severe shaking is the drive shaft.
