98 Durango

I have a 98 Durango with a 5.5 inch suspension lift.

A couple weeks ago I broke the front axl, tie rods, and had to replace 2 ball joints in the front. I also got new tires which were balanced and aligned.

When I get on the highway and get going abt 50-55 mph I start getting a vibration ( I think from the back) that I can feel in the steering wheel and gas pedal. It almost feel as if the back tires are egg shaped or something. I'm wondering if my CV joint is broken?

Any other suggestions as to what to look for?

HELP my truck is trying to send me to the poor house.

What size and type tire are they? Some of the larger tires are bias ply and if thats what you have it isn't uncommon for them to ride like they are square. If not the tires, I would start checking U joints.
