Thanks for the input. But it's not shaking because of a wheel or bearings, it's because of the Traction control kicking on and off.

For the life of me I can't get the axle to back out of the carrier on the drivers side. I think I'll need a new axle too because I've hit it too much with a hammer and now the nut won't fit anymore.
