They had one of the machines that does the road force balance. I would try that first.
I heard 'ground force balance', probably the same thing...I'd also recommend finding a shop that could perform that balance for you. You may also be experiencing separation in your tires....nor riding on firestones are you?

1500, so hopefully it's not that, although I have heard of it!

My '04 has the shake at 60-65 mph also, feels like it is in the rear. Had the tires rotated and still in the rear. So far have had rear pads, rotors, calibers. E-brake backing replaced. new tires, drive shaft balanced. Still there.

Any help?

Mark

get a friend to drive beside you and see if it's the axle shaking in the rear. and check the wheels. 9 out of ten times it's the wheels or tires causing it.

What kind of road are you driving on? Is it always the same one when you hit 70 mph? I ask this because sometime the cement interstates get just a touch lumpy. This isnt a big deal in a sedan or something with a shorter wheel base but truck owners with the longer wheel bases have complained that it seems to be just the right "rhythm" to the washboard road that sets off their trucks.
