Shake rattle and roll

I have an 89 toyota corolla that shakes when I get up to highway speeds. Any ideas on what this could be here?

Providing the past history and repairs on the car would be helpful.

However, without any other information, I would venture a guess at your tires being out of balance. Try swapping the front tires with the rear and see if that makes a difference. When was the last time your tires were rotated and balanced, how old are they??

Lastly, barring any other suspension problems, your shocks may be worn, however, I would start with looking at the tires.

Could also be loose tie-rod ends, or even a loose bearing.

While your rotating the tires, grab the front tires and "wiggle" them in and out and see if there is any looseness.
