Angry Bad vibes

so after having my tires balanced twice, this time they were bang on ,on the machine, watched them do them, no cupping. anyway i have a bad shake around 60-70 mph...like an unbalanced tire, i always blamed it on the lift cause i knew my pinion angle was off, after i removed the lift its much better, only noticeable at those speeds vs all the time. so i had the tires rebalanced just to try it and no luck....i know my rear rotors are warped a bit and im thinking the lift may have done a number on my u joints...could this be the cause of my shaking? or should i just wait a while until i replace my tires to see if they really are the culprit?

Can you put on a spare set of tires? I chased a vibration around and around and it was the tires. They balanced, but had hard spots that made them ride horrible.

My truck has eaten 3 u-joints and they only get worse with time, nothing makes them better except new ones. They'll have a much faster vibration than a tire or rotor would cause and usually only vibrate either on or off the gas. Doesn't sound like that's the culprit.....

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then it must be a duck. I'm calling bad tire(s).

Me too
You might be surprised just 'how-far-out' many tires are ...and it seems the bigger and heavier they get - the bigger the problem .

My 2 cents,
