Tow Mirrors Shake

Hey guys I have a 02 7.3. I just got it about a month ago and all I can say is damn the tow mirrors shake/vibrate like a mofo on this thing. Is this normal?

I have heard at certain rpm if the mirrors shake could be an injector

They shake at an idle or going down the road from the wind. Mine shake goind down the road, but I think thats cause when I had them apart to paint them I put alot of greese in there and now they operate very smoothly, just shake going down the road.

No way it has bad injectors causing the mirrors to shake. LOL I had reg mirrors on it and they didnt shake but the tow mirrors shake bad. This truck runs like a top. Wasn't sure if the tow mirrors just shake alot
