Do you know if or when the rear diff has had its fluid changed? Try doing that a couple of times ONLY with Honda DualPump II fluid before looking for at getting another one.

Change the rear diff fluid with Honda fluid (it has special characteristics). A Honda repair specialist would know to use the special DPII fluid. Takes ~ 1.5 qts per change (easy to DIY)



The shaking at 40 - 60 MPH could be something else. Check tires first (rotate F>R to see if it changes).

Could be a binding u-joint in the driveshaft too, or a binding brake caliper (test by feeling left vs right front wheels...HOT = binding caliper).
