first thought is wheel balance.

Its the quick easy fix. A few bucks at any tire shop.

I can't see wheel balance being related to acceleration, just speed. When the vibration goes away when you stop accelerating, I'm thinking drive train.

I'm thinking alignment -wheel balance too. Mine did it a little before I put new tires on it. Baffled me because it was only 55-70. Did have to put rear arms in it because they were rusted and seized and couldn't be aligned.

They replaced the entire rear control arm(s) because the alignment bolts were seized?? Can you please elaborate?

Yep two different great shops and they tried everything. 5' bar on it and it wouldn't move. Impossible to get to also. Said not the first Ridgeline he's seen like it.

Bueno..... had not heard of those seizing to corrosion before.... interesting; from the sound of this report, it may not be all that unusual.

Nope and I was kind of shocked. You can't drlll it out or anything. They ended up cutting them off and showed me every step of the way why. It was starting to wear the back tires so I had to do something fast. The truck is garaged and has been rock solid for me. Just a freak kind of thing I suppose. She tracks nice now. :act024:

Sometimes I need to read about these corrosion issues to remember not to take living in SoCal for granted. It's nice not to be haunted by any of those issues.

I'm thankful with every post I read about rust. I'm just amazed that people living there don't get sick of it and get the states to use something else other than "salt"

well the trouble was the Rt and Lt driveshafts
I'm guessing the front RT and LT half shafts? Any more details or pictures are always helpful?

Honda calls them driveshafts (#s 4&5 below)..... there's also a half-shaft, but that's a 3rd item up front (#16 in this diagram).
