Vibration/ Rough ride on 06 V6

I have a terrible vibration/ rough ride, it occurs at almost any speed. No road feels smooth it's always bumpy. The wheel shimmies about 35-38 mph, then goes away and doesn't come back until about 75. Is this how it's supposed to feel?

I took it to the dealer and they did a rotate and balance. Took it back two days later they claim they checked every thing else and didn't find anything.

Specs:
2006 Mustang V6 premium w/ pony package and 17" stock wheels and tires that came with it. I did put in nitrogen in the tires, not sure if that makes a difference?

take it to another dealer, there's no reason it should take 2 days to isolate a vibration. It's most likely a wheel/tire, u-joint, or possibly damage to the driveshaft or an axle, but that's pretty slim.

i would have guessed balancing the tires would have done it, were you driving it hard before this started happening? maybe bent something so its not perfectly straight like ryan said.

No, but I did run into a decent sized pot hole typical Atlanta street. I am going to take Ryan's suggestion and take it to a different dealer.
