Front end wobbles at 62 mph and up. We replaced the wheel hubs, axels and ball joints. New tires also. Wondering if if it could be steering shaft or u-joints.

Do you
have the same problem?

Did you get an alignment done after the front end work?

No, alignment will not cause/cure vibration. At that speed it has to be something in the tires, wheels or balancing. It doesn't necessarily have to be coming from the front though.

You will run the risk of destroying tyres with out an alignment get this done, ensure all steering components are sound and tyres do not have deformities such as slight out or round, this is easily picked up with a balance machine.
