so ive noticed that after I romp on it and let off around 80-90mph my steering wheel will shake pretty rough. it does it slgihtly when im cruising around 50-60 mph.

could it be my driveshaft or bad u joints? Im a little stumped

where is the vibration coming from? can you hear it anywehre or just feel it in the wheel?

if its just the wheel i might wanna say balancing.

its aall in the steering wheel. i DID just get new tires about 2-3 weeks ago. they said they balanced them but it doesnt feel smooth.

they were excellent and smooth when i fist drove em then the vibrations came after a week or 2

if it pulls then you need an alignment.

but as mentioned its something in the front end

theres a few things it could be, bent wheel, bad balancing, bad alignment. i'd start out with the balance, have it redone and see if its better, if not and thier not bent, you need an alignment, and yes, bad alignent can make it shake.

i've heard about that happening, i work for the company, they fire the person who did it and they fire the service manager and the guy that checked the work. back when i worked on machinery, i had to replace a bunch of stuff on a skidsteer (basically a bobcat thing) because they didnt torque the wheels every 25 hrs being run. cost em like 5k to fix.
