I get a shimmy too ever since I lifted my truck and put the big meats on.
I have it shimmed, balancing beads, and centramatic balancers.
Still have the shimmy but not as bad. My shimmy starts around 45 and continues. 70 is more noticeable than 45-50. I do not know whats going on but drives me nuts. Sometimes I feel like a dog wagging its butt.
I might try rotating my tires 180deg. I have no play in the front, not weird tire wear or anything. The whole truck seems to do it like the op and get a very slight shimmy in the steering wheel cause of it. Tires appear to roll smooth and straight, nothing obvious. Might need dual stabalizers, idk.
Curious what you guys find on yours. Maybe angled blocks or shims. I only have 3in over stock in the rear and 5 in the front. I might try 2rear and 4 front to see if anything changes. Or even go back to stock in the rear to eliminate carrier shims to troubleshoot the issue.
Will keep an eye on this thread to see what you guys find
