Good morning Matt47336,

Have you had a diagnosis done by your dealership? Just checking - if so, I'm happy to follow up on this with them. If you would like for me to check into warranty or recall information on your vehicle, I'd be happy to do this as well - send me a private message with the last 8 digits of your VIN and contact information.

Sarah, GM Customer Service

It's an 05 LS with 48974 miles but it sat in a barn for three years, but It only seems to shake when I'm accelerating

My ball joint was bad had play in it but it is easier to change the entire lca and end up saving money in the long run.
