      My 97X 4x4 has a front end shake between 55 and 70 mph. I had new ball joints installed with an allignment. New 32 x 11.5 bf's. I also hand twisted my driveshaft to check for bad joints and all seemed well. ok at lower speeds.

      Shake-Had same problem

      My 95 had the same problem. Thought for sure it was coming from the front end. Checked the u-joints and they seemed ok. Took it to my local mechanic(NOT dealer)and come to find out it was the "rear" u-joint. New u-joint with a zert fitting and it's smooth as silk now. Hope this helps! John

      that really could be anything, i mean it could even be a slightly bent wheel - you're new 32's (the larger diam) might be amplifying the bend to a point where its now noticable at highway speeds.
