Shaking Feeling while driving

Any ideas on this I've balance the wheels a couple times already. And it's not all the time either. I have the shelby razor 245 35 20 in the front and 285 30 20 in the rears with Nittos 555 all around.

Are you lowered? Does it happen anywhere or just certain roads?

Ehh that's not enough of a lowering for what I was gonna suggest haha. I am lower and my car loves to pull all which kind of ways. I run bigger front tires than you to.

Could be the electronic steering control.

I mean mine does what your saying yours does, but only on certain sections of highway. Usually ones that have been worn down by semis real bad.

The whole car, that is weird. I had a badly miss worn tire on my 2007 tundra do that. You don't have any flat spots on your tires do you?

Next thought, recheck all the bolts you took apart for the springs. Struts bolts, make sure the strut mounts and spring perches are snug. Etc.

This is a long shot but you might have a bad u joint on your driveshaft those can cause intermittent shakes and it will shake the whole car

In my younger years I got a new set of tires. When I got home I checked the tire pressure "those jerks didn't fill the tires correctly" I thought to myself. Over the next few days at highway speeds the car shook like crazy. I took the car back to the shop told them what was going on. 10min. later he told me the tires were over filled. I then explained to him I filled them to what the tire said they be at. He informed me that that was the MAX pressure for that tire not the recommended pressure. Anyway, check your pressure I was amazed at the difference this made.

Also if the lugs have been over tightened it can warp the rotors and cause a vibration.

Yes, the pressure listed on the side of the tire is the max pressure. I've had people on here try and tell me otherwise. Not many people but a few did.

Exactly what i was thinking. Had a similar problem with one of my f-bodies. Drove me crazy until i upgraded to an aluminum drive shaft and new u joints. After that problem solved.
