Steering wheel shake

So i know this has been addressed before, but my case is a little different. One night i was coming around a corner and there were a ton of deer in the road. i smacked a small one and then ran over it. This caused me to loose traction and put the car through a ditch. thankfully the ditch was very wide and not very deep. Me and my father chained it up and pulled my car out. I took it to a local tire shop to have the tires realigned. after the alignment my steering wheel would shake at 60 mph+. so i when back and got my tires balanced and rotated. this fixed the problem, but only for about a week. The shaking just came back today, I plan to take it back as soon as I can. Until then, does anyone have any idea if its my wheels or possibly something mechanical?? by the way my car is a 2007 v6 base model with a 5-speed

You could have lost a weight off of a tire. Did you have any other work done besides an alignment?

Quick update: I found out it only shakes in between 65-75mph anything lower or higher is smooth like it should be. I plan to take it back to the tire shop Tuesday.

Mines also does this. I have an 08 base automatic & at About 60-70 mph the steering wheel shakes then stops. Like said above, perfectly fine lower & higher. Any answers on why yet?

Edit, it's doing it again, took it to a different place and found out I have flat spots on my tires from locking them down. I'll replace them and then see what happens

Mine was a ball joint way to much play in the right. I had first one change out my right ball joint and the left was done about two month ago. Excessive play will make the car shake and pull to either side. Hope this helps.

I have the same issue, shakes at ~65 to 70 and smooth at all other speeds. I am not if this started after new tires a couple of years ago. I rotated 6 months ago and maybe it is related to that. It is interesting that we all have the same problem at that speed. Has anyone found the cause? Did replacing ball joints fix this?

I had that problem with a set of rims I had, but then I got ahold of some 2015 oem GT rims and after I put those on the shaking when away.

I also replaces the inner and outer tie rods. But with the oem ford rims it stopped the shaking at 65-75

There is a retainer washer on one stud that if you don't remove with aftermarket rims will cause wheel wobble. Oem wheels have a recess to handle this. Other than that either bent wheel,out of balance tire,out of round tire, loose/bent ft end parts or flat spotted tires.

Since yours started with wreck bent wheel,bent/loose ft end parts or flat spotted tires

It's most likely the weight, doesn't matter if it's been a week or a day the weight can come off getting out the lot hitting a speed bump to fast. If it's not the weight there's a chance you dent your rim. Most likely it's the weight.
