In the front or back? Is the steering wheel shaking? Does it feel like a harmonic, or a shake?

Its a harmonic vibration, you can't feel it in the steering wheel at all and can't really tell where it is coming from. It comes and goes meaning it is not a constant vibration. When it is vibrating it will vibrate for 6 or 8 seconds quit for 6 or 8 seconds virbate for 6 or 8 seconds quit for 6 or 8 seconds and on and on but it happens at 63 to 68 mph every time.....

x2 big. I would be looking at the back of the truck to start. My 05 is lug centric, but I don't know about the earlier gens. A small amount of "out of balance" will definitely show up at higher speeds, but not always be a prob at slower speeds. If the wheels are lug centric try this: loosen up the lug nuts, then snug them evenly so that the lug tapers all seat evenly. Then tighten them down and test drive the truck. If it doesn't go away, then take it back to the tire shop for a look see.

Thanks for the input. I will try having the tires balanced with a lug centric type hub instead of a center bore type hub...It's time for a oil change and balance come to think about it....

most parts are not too hard... it is the front end that sucks.. and getting the wheel bearings put in and out. If you have done a IFS drop lift before then you should be able to do it.. if not i am sure you will need lots of help
