Default 2009 Ram 1500 vibration

And here we go. Standard cab short box 4x4 stock suspension. Alignment done all components are tight @ 33000 miles. have a vibration @ 70MPH.
have tried 2 different sets of custom wheels & tires both were road force balanced. one set of wheels were non hub centric & the others are hub centric. Tires on the truck now are a Toyo Proxes ST 305/50/20. getting real tired of this. someone know of a fix?
Thanks in advance

sounds like you covered the basics in tryin to track down the cause :/ I think a couple of us on here have just accepts the fact that we are shit out of luck with our rims/tire package and it'll always ride a little crappy. mine do it too

Those star washers usually dont cause an issue, UNLESS, the owner has changed the standard OEM wheels. Some aftermarket wheels hit those washers and can upset the wheel when they torque them down. Other than that, normally wont effect the stock rims... hence balancing issue.

I had the exact truck before buying the QC i have now, it had this exact issue...
the factory OEM shocks are junk, replace ALL the shocks with GOOD QUALITY gas shocks, problem gone..!
Hope this helps you, it fixed mine 100%. And make sure you have the updated alignment spec`s too...!!!
The alignment spec`s have changed... call chrysler direct to get the new spec`s...!!!
