Shuttering @ 45-50mph

Truck has 183,000 miles & it's bone stock.

I jsut added new fuel lines, filter, FPR Shim, no fuel pressure guage. I've been meaing to add it since I shimmed it, but havent had time.

After all this work, I get on the Parkway to go to work and the first time it did it, I thought the shuttering was the bumpy road. Then it kept doing it until I added or removed throttle.

It now does it at 45-50 mph constantly. It SOUNDS like it is running fine, and doesnt seem to have any sort of loss in power; even when I get on it.

I dont remember if my truck shuttered before I shimmed it.

Sounds like fuel delivery, right? Fuel pump?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or input! Cheers!

Have you run it enough to get any air out of the system?

Yeah, I've put over 4,000 miles on it since the tune-up.

It does it around 45-50 mph, 1200 RPM.

I was thinking tires, but wouldnt the vibe change with speed? This changes with variations of the throttle.

Check the balance of your tires, that 40-60mph zone us the key shake zone fir and off balance. You might not feel it as much when the engine is being throttles since these engine vibrate a lot too

Just put new tires and shocks on it. WOW! What a difference.

The old tires didn't LOOK bad, but they must have had a blown cord or two. That thing got violent yesterday on the way to the shop.

Thanks for the help gents!
