    number of reasons for shaking: bad tire, out of balance, separated tread, bent wheel. I know you stated having the wheels balanced however that doesn’t mean it was done properly or you could have chucked a wheel weight and not known it while driving. Hard to say my friend without looking into it

    Did they happen to balance the tires using Bead bags? If so that was the issue on my truck and my wife's jeep. Once we had them removed and balanced with traditional stick on weights the issue was completely resolved.

    Those Dyna Beads are good for motorcycles but not car or truck tires.Also you don't have the right wheel bead weight right it will make it ride bad too.

    had beads installed. 1 day perfect the next day a popcorn machine. I am starting to believe the bags don't deteriorate as they say and when you park, the bag retains beads. WAY OUT OF WHACK the next time perfect. I am gonna have to check for the bag or remove them all together.

    The usual culprit is tire out of balance or tread separation.
    I'd have them rebalanced and carefully inspect the tread.

    I know from experience that some shops struggle trying to balance larger tires.

    And lastly, you may wanna check your lug nuts for Torque.

    Omg, my truck is a pop corn machine when I hit the brakes. Now it's been doing this for almost 2 years now. Had it looked at & was told cv axle, pass side. I replaced. Still shaking. I replaced drivers side. Still shaking. Someone said rotors. Replaced all 4 with pads. Still shaking. Someone said sticking caliper. Replaced all 4. Still shaking. Abs sensor (on rear axle) replaced. Still shaking. New tires (Sullivan Tire). Still shaking. Also had 4 wheel alignment. Didn't matter. Shaking.

    If I hit brakes on any type of down slope it's horrendous. I've got upper & lower control arms in garage, just haven't put them on yet. Wondering if it's the bushings. I've also got the 3 rubber brake hoses in the back (right, left. & middle) just haven't changed yet. I also have a friend that works at a garage & he said he'd try & diagnose it for me. But he just got back from vacation & I didn't want to hit him up on 1st week back. Anyway, there's probably things I can't remember that I've replaced. Hopefully I'll get this figured out before snow flys in New England. Defiantly learn how to drive away from people. If I get this figured out I'll report back.
