I have a 1999 f150 4X4 offroad and love it. I am having some shaking in the front. It feels like tires are unbalanced. I checked my tires and even swapped them around. Went for a drive and around 50 or 60 mph it shakes at times off and on. I can feel it in a turn more, and seems to be on the left side. I could see no problems when I pulled the wheels. I did recently change the brake pads in the front and they seem smooth when breaking. I have had a CV problem on other vehicles but this has no sound to it, just shakes. Tires look ok. I have goodyear wrangler rt's. I bought the truck used and has been great any help would be appreciated.
Had a similar problem with my old 92 F-150. Ended up the camber adjustors were worn out. This caused the front end to shake between 65 and 75mph, exactly. At +76mph or below 64mph the front end was as smooth as silk. I has those tires balanced and rebalanced I don't know how many times before I finally figured this one out.

Had the tires balanced and they went out again in a couple days. Thanks to GOODYEAR Wrangler RT's. Tires should have gone another 30k with the tread on them. I bought some Big Boy tires BF GOODRICH T/A KO, anybody else tried these tires. I hear they are real tough.
I used to drive a 95 F450 wrecker and it had similar problems it turned out to be the steering stablizer shock being wasted. That truck had a mono beam axle with kingpins so it might not be the same. my 2cents
