Steering Wheel Vibration....Still
I posted several months ago about the bad steering wheel shake/vibration I have been having. Since then, I took it to the toyota dealership and they said it was the alignment. I also got my wheels road force balanced. Then, I bought a new set of tires thinking the tires may just be bad. Since the tires, I have had the wheels aligned 5 times by two different shops, had the tires rotated and balanced again, and have even had the shock replaced with Bilstein HD shocks since I was told shocks could contribute to the vibration...
I STILL have the vibration in the steering wheel 90% of the time, from about 63MPH+. Every now-and-then it will be smooth as glass, though, so I honestly am out of ideas.
Should I just take it back to Toyota and see what they think (last time they simply told me that larger (265 BFG All-Terrains) will cause this issue)? The 3-inch spacer lift and tires were installed at the Toyota house before I even bought my truck (I bought it new and it was a "special edition" with lift, tires, bumper replacements, etc.).
Please let me know if you have any ideas on what the issue could be. I am seriously considering trading it in on something else since I can no longer deal with the steering wheel shake on trips.'
