STEERING SHAKES AT 60MPH

2000 Toyota Tacoma

Steering problem
2000 Toyota Tacoma 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 101, 00 miles

My truck steering is fine till 60mph and shakes bad till 70mph and smooths out. I had the tie rods changed, frontend alignment and tires balanced. I is coming from the right front and the steering shakes really bad. From 0-55 it is smooth and after 70 it smooths out. I have changed tires thinking that the rim is bend or something. What is the problem.

Hi TAKU1,

Apart from wheel balancing, bent rims and steering linkages, other causes could be bad ball joints, wheel bearing excessive free play and bad control arms bushes.
