steering wheel shake at about 45 and shakes when brakeing

I have a 2003 f250 6.0 fx4 and when you hit 45 to 50 the steering wheel shakes, also when braking the front end shakes. Has close to new tires.

Sounds like you have two problems to me. Tires need rebalanced to fix the shake at 45-55 while driving. Does your brake petal pulsate when you brake? If so I suspect warped rotors. I would try to have them turned. If they can't get trued up you would have to replace them. When your in there check to make sure your caliper pins move freely. If one is suck it will cause it to shake when braking. I had one stick on me and I have to replace the whole bracket.

I had a valve stem replaced on my front right tire and afterwards the truck would shake like crazy on the highway.. I took it back and the tire shop had to rebalance the tire again... So you might have that checked as well. (my truck shakes just a bit but I think the rebalance of the tire is working its way back to normal..)
