Hmmm, let me think about this and get back to you.

my initial research suggested something called "axle wrap", but i cant see how that would start happening all of a sudden like this...could it be possible that the shop messed up on something to cause the shaking?
Expert:  Chris replied 9 months ago.

When the shop replaced the clutch this time, did they have the fly wheel resurfaced and did they also replace the clutch pressure plate? If they did not do these things, then you may be experiencing "clutch chatter" That will happen if only the clutch disc is replaced. So ask them about that.
