I was driving my 1999 Outback sport on the highway yesterday and noticed a prominant vibration above 60 mph. It feels like a drivetrain vibration, all tires are the original and the same wear. I have no idea what the problem is, any help would be appreciated.

I would strongly suspect tires though you didn't post the mileage.

maybe a friend could pace you and see if there is wheel hop at one of the corners. Also look for a bulge or 'cupping/scalloped' wear on one tire. Sometimes you can lose a piece of tread on the inside and not spot it unless looking for the scar.

let us know what you find out OK?

Possibly even a balance weight fell off...

Vibration at 60?

Drive at 55...

(Tho this didnt work for my Pinto that had the same problem... the engine was out of balance and eventually cracked a piston, out of warranty of course... But my vibration was engine-related.)

I'll check the tires, mileage is 41k,but it isn't with every revolution of the tires, although the frequency remains the same.

I'll post the results. I originally thought tires as well, it's my wifes car and she hit a curb a while ago.
