HouseCallAuto 10/3/2012You very likely are describing an excessively worn inner CV joint. I have run across this a few times over the years. very hard to diagnose, usually the car gets the full auto parts store thrown at it to no avail. What happens is as you accelerate the inner tripode that is supposed to slide in and out of the inner tripode housing (also called a tulip housing) begins to extend furthest outward under the hardest acceleration. The reason it slides outward is because the suspension height changes causing the axles to want to "stretch". The problem is that the outside edge of the housing gets excessively worn and there is actually place where the tripode gets stuck. when you let off the gas and the engine relaxes and the suspension height lowers and the axle tripode tries to slide back an inch to effectively "shorten" the axle, the tripode becomes stuck in that worn spot. The result is what you so gallantly and effectively described. A shaking of the chassis (and steering) back and forth with an irregular rythym that finally relaxes as your mph gets near lower speeds. Not sure what side is your cause but I would guess the left because that is the shorter axle.
