without ac voltage is perfect
also checked load with highlights /blower /windows deffrose /fog lights

Id recommend you take a close look at your crank pulley. They have a rubber "damper" that over time can wear out and begin to slip. Eventually you'll have problems getting a good charge on your battery. You can put a mark (bright pink nail polish works really well! ) on the crank pulley on the outer (power steering) pulley, and a matching mark on either inner pulley. (Or just use the timing marks) take it for a short drive and see if the marks get out of line. I'd also recommend a trickle charge on your battery. Though my battery seemed fine, the trickle charger actually took 2 days to get a full charge! Another thought, it could very simply be worn engine mounts (though they won't affect voltage) causing excessive shake, or perhaps even ignition timing.
