    3" lift
    My truck drove straight and no shaking at any speed from 0-80 MPH until I had a 3" lift installed. After the lift was installed I got a slight steering wheel shake at 55-65 MPH (it still drives perfectly straight). The shake goes away if the road surface is really smooth. A few days later I had new wheels and cooper Stt 265 75 16's installed balanced and an alignment job done. The shake is still there. What is road balancing? Is there something else I should do?

    Without Upper controls arms or lowering your 3" lift some it will always be there. Embrace the shake or get UCA's. Reason I believe it's fine on perfect roads is because it's a minor case of bump steer. Mine does the same thing but for the price of UCA's I can live with it.
