    I took my truck into The Truck Shop in Miramar yesterday to have some work done and just got it back. Getting on the freeway to come home, I noticed a fairly strong shaking or wobbling starting at about 45mph that I know wasn't there before. It feels like it's in the entire truck but it's you can see and feel that the steering wheel is shaking pretty good too.
    Any ideas what this could be? And should I be too concerned with it right now or should I wait and see if it goes away?

    It sounds like an alignment or tire balancing problem, but the tries were just done and they shouldn't have done anything that would have messed with the alignment.

    I took it in to do the 100k mi maintenance, my airbag system wasn't working, I had a decent amount of brake noise and other noises, and this annoying and weird clicking/rattling that ive been hearing for a long time. They had to replace the steering column coil wire(?) for the airbag system, my back brakes were turned, and one of my rotors were super heat warped and the pad was wearing uneven so they replaced both pads and rotors. That clicking turned out to be a crack in the frame at the body mount, so they welded the crack and thew a gusset on it.

    Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

    Have the tires checked again, sometimes weights fall off.

    What all did you have done?

    Does the vibration go away if you step on the brakes?

    I'm pretty sure it does go away when I brake. I wasn't on the freeway for long and there was quite a bit of traffic so need some more time behind the wheel to be positive though.

    The shaking was very strong when I first got on the freeway and kinda settled down a little by the end of the drive. And as I picked up speed it seemed to get less intense. But, not fun to drive at those speeds.

    Are you saying both rear drums were replaced? or turned? You had both rear shoes replaced?

    Are you saying both front rotors & pads were replaced?

    I'm confused because its unusual that a front pad will wear unevenly. A rear SHOE can wear unevenly.
