Alright, I have a few things id like some opinions on. First, I got new wheels, around 60mph I get vibrations in the steering wheel. My wheels had the same thing but it was hardly noticeable. And my old ones were balance 4 different times. Could I need a rebalance? Could it be my brake calipers? I'm pretty sure you'd only feel it while breaking if it was. Also, i installed a hurst short throw, I started noticing a while ago that from a stop when I accelerate normally it kind of pulls the shifter back and creeks. And same with stopping, if I brake while in gear it'll pull the shifter forward and I hear it creek. Not really a big problem but they're both just kind of annoying haha. Also how do I know when my shocks/struts are going out?

Well for the wheels did you make sure they were torqued correctly? Not sure about an answer for your second question.

If your steering wheel shakes during driving then generally the tires need to be balanced and for your shifter what do you mean moves? Like the shifter is trying to change gears or the whole transmission moves?

Yeah when I put them on I torqued all of them down to 100 ft-lbs. I remember seeing some weird metal thing on one of the studs. I checked and it was on all four. Should I remove those? I thought it might make it fit funny but I wasn't sure if I would be a bad thing to remove them. ---------- Post added at 11:17 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:16 PM ----------

I'm not sure exactly what's happening, but I can feel the shifter handle kind of pull. It's hard to explain.

I'll probably go to where I bought them and have them rebalanced when I get the chance.

Remove the washer looking thing's from your studs, that's where the vibration is coming from. Break them off with needle nose pliers. The stock wheels were recessed and aftermarket wheels are flat.
On the shifter moving, check your motor and transmission mounts.

Alright I thought that's what it was, and I'm going to check the bolts and everything for the shifter itself as well, thanks dude!
