Default Highway Vibration

I have a 2009 Dodge CC Sport with 22" Wheels. In the last two weeks I am getting a horrible vibration at 70-75 that makes it feel like the truck is going to hop onto the shoulder. I have had the tie rods in the front replaced, the u bolts replaced on the driveshaft, the wheels balanced, then road force balanced and they could not get good numbers at all. Now bean bags and still the same vibration. Anyone have any suggestions on what to do. The dodge dealership tells me they cannot diagnose because they are not allowed to test drive the vehicle above the speed limit. HELP

So are you saying the wheels and tires can't be balanced properly? If so then that is the issue.

Are the wheels hub centric?

I agree. Tires, probably the underlying issue.

Go to a good tire shop and then have them follow these instructions. make sure you start by having the right lugs and centric rings for your wheels if you need them.

1. Check wheel for run-out, if more than a few thousandths the wheel is bent, replace it.

2. Mark the wheel AND the tire at the spot of the most weight. Dismount tire from wheel.

3. Place wheel (with TPMS attached) only on the balancing machine and balance the wheel only.

4. Mount tire on wheel with mark from earlier oposite of any weight (180 degrees) placed on wheel.

5. Balance tire and wheel assembly.

6. If assembly still requires excessive weight or wont balance well the tire is bad. Remeber, just because it has tread or is new doesnt mean the tire is good, many things can happen in the moulding and manufactur process to damage it.

Man that is pretty involved, but I would be pretty impressed if a tire shop went through that much effort to correct a problem, I would certainly be going back.

Not really. That was the process for years and why most tire shops charge so much to "Mount and Balance". Now they just take your money, do the job as quick as possible and push you out the door. Some shops still take pride in their work, if you find one stay with them, even if they charge a little more.
