Bad shake while driving! Ideas?

I have a 96 prelude that I recently got out of storage. Before I put it away I did a obd1 jdm h22a swap and have been working out the bugs slowly. Now it's pretty much road worthy but when I test drove the car it shakes in the steering wheel and in the seat at 80+Kmh. I redid the brakes and it got somewhat better but the abs sensors wore out and fell off. I was just wondering what may cause this? Could it be the abs? And how could I diagnose the problem?
I've been told to;
balance my wheels
Change my transmission fluid
Check my rear hubs
Get an front and rear alignment
It's going to the garage Wednesday so it would be nice to tell them what the problem is so they don't have to guess and cost me more in labor figuring it out!
If anyone has any other suggestions or tips on how to do/check these things I'd really appreciate it!

Not sure what the transmission fluid would have to do with it, but all the others, plus a few more (wheel bearings, CV joints, flat spots from sitting in storage) are all possible. You just have to walk through and eliminate them. Rotating the tires, rebalancing them, and making sure the alignment's set is cheap insurance -- see what that produces before moving further.

Re: Bad shake while driving! Ideas?

Is it constant in curves and straights?
Accelaration? Decelaration?
All you wheel weights still attached?
Could it be square spots on the tires? Like Jamie said.
You can balance an egg, but getting it to roll good is another matter.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

Re: Bad shake while driving! Ideas?

check your engine mounts and maybe wheel bearings after youll get the alignment done (so you know that the suspension parts are ok)

Re: Bad shake while driving! Ideas?

balance wheels, bad axles, bent wheel, alignment...if it vibrates at certain speeds, then it could be the axles cause I've had this happen to me

Re: Bad shake while driving! Ideas?

It's a combination of poorly balanced tires, bad axles, and a terrible alignment. The original problem was bent belts in the tires. Thanks for all the help and ideas guys!
