Default 2007 Front end vibration

Hello, I have an '07 Ram 5.7 QC Lonestar 64,000 miles. Front end has a vibration between 55 and 70 ish. Had tires balance, alignment, tie rods and its still there. From what Ive read this is a common problem. What I cant find is what the solution has been. Can anyone point me in that direction. Thanks for the help!

First off welcome to the forum! Be sure and introduce yourself in the new comer section!

Are you stock? Stock wheels/tires, front end parts? Or are you running any kind of after market wheels, leveling kit, bigger tires?

I have the same issue, 2008 Ram 1500 4dr 4wd bone stock with 115k on it, it started shaking at about 85k at 75 to 80 mph I though it was just tires. I put new tires on at 110k '' the same tires it has had on since it was new'' Good Years. This is the third set of tires I have owned the truck since new.
I brought it in to change the tires and get it aligned , I was told it needed front end parts so I replaced Lower ball joints and inner and outer tie rod ends, installed 4 new tires and truck still shacks at 80 mph.
It's not as bad but still there, I will be bringing it to another shop to rebalance tires and I hope that will resolve problem..

All is stock. I took it for tire balance at sears. Found the tie rods were bad so I had them replaced and alignment done. Took it on the expressway, the heavy vibration is gone but there is still a tight vibration in the steering wheel and gas pedal.

Hey guys, not sure if this will help you but was reading earlier today in 3rd Generation that several guys had done all you had done to the suspension with lots o $$$ and it ended up being the drive shaft. Get under and look at the drive shaft for weld points, weights, that may have broken away and come out of balance. Hope this helps!

Thank you, I will have to check that, everything is new all front end parts including struts and changing out rims. Stiil shakes at 78mph and above.

welp, looks like you need to stay below 78mph haha. When they balance your wheels, they don't guarantee anything above the posted speed limit. So they go up to 65/70 when they balance. (At least the place I talked to)
