Ok first off,09 ram 1500 4x4 quad cab 5.9 60,000 miles
ok i put a 2 1/2 inch leveling kit on the front and a spacers in the back,truck looks awesome,took the truck in with the factory 20 inch wheels and got a alinment all was great,didnt take it in for two day after i got all this done,and put about 100 miles on it before it got alliended,so i got it done and i got after market 20" rims and new tires but factory size,after i did all that maybe a couple 1000 miles i would guess i felt a shake in the front end on the drivers side front,was not bad didnt have time to get it checked because it seem to only do it at 60-70 mph and was not that bad at all,now i took teh truck in for the tie rod recall and they said thay replaced them,ok still had the shake,now i drove it for a good time still doing it at times,not i got the tires rotated and its bad,happens all the time 50-7- mph i guess and also sometimes on high speed turns,i have heard about the death wobble and have did some reading on it but i dont think this is it,and help fast would be great,i do love the truck and the power and what a wonderful ride it had before all of this....please help me
thanks craig

Some of the better tire shops have the Hunter 9700 Road Force Balance machine
It is the best current way to get your wheel & tire balanced

Any fix for the problem of a vibration at 60+? I have a 2010 crew cab with 24's that does the exact same thing. Bought new rear tires and had the tires balanced twice, hasn't gone away. Thinking I need to try the road force balance, haven't heard of that befor. weird thing is the vibration comes and goes...need some help. Very frustrating for such an expensive truck.
