This is just a suggestion Mike but when I had the same problem I replaced my upper control bushings
with performance tuned upper control arm bushings. Its been great ever since and one hell of a smooth ride.
The all the info I can give you on that but I'm sure someone else can most likely give you more of a suggestion, hopefully!
Hope it works out for ya!

It's really a hammering effect (seems to be the right front)between 45 and 60 mph. I've just replaced the original TRX with new wheels & 16" tires, and am now ready to attack this shaking. It happens anytime I'm driving in that range, accelerating or braking. Bushings? Control arms? thrust arms all of the above? Help is appreciated.
