Out Of Balance

What could cause the feeling of out of balance tires, if not the tires themselves?

I was in an accident a month or so back, and had to have my front axel and housing replaced. When I got it back, I noticed a vibration in the front of the jeep. Not only in the steering wheel, but in the whole front end, and really only at speeds above 60 mph.

The repair shop re-balanced my wheels, but the vibration is still there.

I'm bringing it back to the shop, but would like to go in with some ideas for them to check.

What else could be out of balance?

I have no lift, and have not replaced the stock 30" tires yet.

Busted belt? as in one of teh steel belts in the radial tires? Interesting. How sould that be found?

The track bar sounds promising. I had a weird steering wheel wobble after a pothole one day. Couldn't reproduce it though, so just thought it was an anomoly. But that could have been it.

Thanks for the ideas guys.

Go to a dealer that has a Hunter GSP9700 its a load force balancer and will find anything from a bad rim to a bad tire or most likely bad balance.
Go here and type in your zip.
