    I have the same problem on a 2007 gmc savanah 3500 box truck.. seams as the front tires bounc above 65 mph sometimes noticeable really bad something drives like a brand new car
    things that have been replaced
    Rear leaf spring shackles as they were bad
    Carrier barring (center bering on drive shaft)
    All three u joints
    Sent drive shaft out for balancing
    Front Ball joints
    Upper control arm
    Tie rod ends
    Stering Gear box
    Pitman arm
    Idler arm
    2 front tires and a alignment
    Only thing in the front end that has not been changed is the coil spring and the lower control arm
    Only thing I can think of is a bent rim
    Please help any other options

    Check ride height. Possible bad leveling valve.

    Tru Balance. Tru Balance. Call Ron at tru balance. His product works. I use then on trucks and trailers. Its so worth the labor. Make sure bearing are set correct
    I have 123k on firestone 591 steers that are at 50% or more. Havent checked with tread depth for a few weeks but look great. And i have got 190k on Chinese drive tires. 8 to 10/32 still. Tires suck. But have them wearing good for what they are. Wont buy them again. But they did there job

    I have the same popping noise when I turn the steering.I have a 2009 Volvo 670 truck and I changed king pins,tie rod ends,u joint,front suspension balloons,shock absorbers and wheel alignment done after that,just to fix the shaking in the front wheels.I had a very bad shaking on my front wheels,starting two months ago,when I was on a poorly maintained hwy,and this happened a few times so hard then I needed to stop on the right shoulder of the hwy.I worked like mechanic 7 years for a transport company before I became a truck driver,and I know very well how to do my pre trip inspection and many repairs on my truck,but I never encountered that.The shakings on the front wheels are fixed and the popping sound are coming from inside of steering box.It is what I said to the mechanic,to keep he’s ears very closed to steering box and listening when I turn the steering.He told me that it is impossible,that sound came from there,and after all ,I changed the power steering box and the popping disappeared.I am not a pro.or a very good mechanic,I just want to help with my truck problems.The ball bearings on my power steering box was very bad.Thank you and I apologize my self for my English.
