    I have a 09 access cab 2 wheel drive 92,000 miles, I bought new bilstien 4600 shocks and struts from 4 wheel parts and had them installed by a mech, tires shaking, I bought new tires 225/70/15, still shaking, I bought new MB TKO 8" wheels with the x lugs to seat the rims properly, still shaking. I have had two different mech look at it and both say nothing wrong?. I had all part numbers checked and everything is correct. Had tires balanced 3 times, still shaking!, last resort I am going to toyota monday. Any suggestions?... I am at a total loss!!!

    This is a fairly common problem. It usually has to do with the aftermarket wheels not being HubCentric, like stock wheels are. Also, Road Force balancing of the tires have helped some.


    Also, I want to see pics of a 15" wheel on an 09. :popcorn:

    My bad, I was assuming you had a 6 lug truck. I realize now that you have a 5 lugger.


    Yes, Road Force Balancing is a pressure type tire balancing method that has solved the problem for many. It's not the common balancing type, you have to find a shop that does it. No guarantee that it will work, but it's an option. I eventually got lucky on my 07, and after a road force and a good alignment, the vibration was pretty much gone.

    So it didn't shake until shocks and struts, or when did the shaking start?

    If it started with shocks and struts I'd work backwards from there.

    Ok, I love the truck but the shaking is driving me crazy, I will ask about the force balancing issue...

    It has had some shake with the new shocks but went off the deep end with the new tires and wheels. Both mech's that looked at the truck said the struts and shocks are not the issue. No bad front end parts either.....
