Firstly, it’s important for me to know the model of vehicle and engine size in order for me to help you better. From what you’ve described, the problem sounds like it is in the drive train, like an axle joint or driveshaft. I suggest having a complete suspension and drive train inspection. Also, make sure you check the charging system after replacing the battery to ensure that it is not overcharging. If you decide to get this fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can help you repair your vehicle by performing these checks and diagnose the shaking you’re experiencing.
