After my front suspension rebuild, the only shake I can notice is the
same as you describe, an oscillating shake that seems to go from the 
front to the back of the car.  I believe it may be the UJs in the 
propellor shaft.  I will be replacing them soon, and rebuilding the
rear suspension, watch my web site;  when I find the cause I'll make
a note of it.
