Steering wheel shakes

I've been having a shake when I go 50 mph and up. I just put a couple new tie rods on. Just had a set if ball joints put in. I got a alignment and my tires rotated.

I still have a shake but now it's only between the speeds of 45 and 55 mph. The shake seems to be different too it feels different than it did before. Any ideas?

Out of balance tire or out of round is a good start. You should get them balanced and checked.

You know, it is funny but every Jeep I have ever lifted has had a shake between those speeds. Go slower, no problem. Go faster than 55 and it is fine as well. Typically it ends up being a TRE or loose trackbar being the culprit but I find it odd that it only seemd to happen in that speed range. Long story short: Check your front end components.

Okay I'll do that also. I have a feeling it's something I missed. I have mud terrains also.

Interesting. Mine did the same thing at those speeds, for me it was warped rotors though.

I put new brakes and rotors on jus about a year ago. They looked good when I put the ball joints in.

So I solved my problem it was my tires. I had them balanced today and they were pretty off. The shaking went away. Thanks for the help!!
