Hi my name is Rolando. I own a 04 Maxima. Since july my car has been shaking from 40 to 70 miles an hour. I took to a local shop and was told that my tires were cupped. I replace the front struts the rear shocks and put on four new goodyear. Problem still there tires were balance three times at place of purchase. Replace the good year with continentals and balance. Problem still there. I took the car to another local place and balance them again had them check for everything that could be wrong they found that one of the inner tie rod has a little play in it. The problem is still there, can that little play cause the shaking the shop says no. PLEASE help me this is only sucking me dry.

You've done a lot of work already, but it seemed to me the cupping of those tires is an indication that there is still something wrong with your front end. Front tire cupping is normally caused by bad front suspension, so make sure that you really do have a good struts installed. Secondly, in my two Maximas, I had the front axle nuts (NOT the lug nuts) came loose over time, causing thetire to wobble slightly. Have them check and torque those nuts to spec.
