This is a Dodge V10 2500 extended cab long bed. I have the correct tires and all. The truck has a vibration around 70 mph where it is rather noticeable, At times it goes away but always returns. I have had the tires balanced but the vibration remains. I have check the tires for slipped belts and they are all straight and feel smooth without bumps or dips. In the past I have had tires on other cars that slipped the belts so I think I know what to look for and they shook all the time. One thing could be doing it is when braking the truck pulls to the right a bit so I have felt the wheels for heat to see if I have a brake pad dragging. On unusual heat from either wheel. So I don't know what is causing the pulling to the right unless the left caliper is hanging and not letting as much pressure to the pad as the right. I intend to rebuild the calipers anyway and the pads are in good shape.
The shocks have never been replaced but I have watched the tire while going down the HWY and there don't seem to be a bounce in them. But It is lite enough vibration I am not sure I could see it. One other thing I have done is jack up the rear end and with one tire on the axle ran the the truck up to 70 mph and there was no vibration, done this with each wheel and tire, but the contact to the ground was solid do to the jack stands under the rear axle.
