    Volvo vnl 670 front end shaking even tho i installed two brand new tires. Shaking is around 45mph and then it seems like stops and again around 58-60 shaking. I have autobalancers on both wheels, mechanic said king pins are tied. What could be maybe bad balancers, bad rim or drum ? what do you guys think ?

    thank you

    Time for a FT. end ALT. before you get the new tires into wear patterns that will not go away till the tires are worn like the ones you just took off, a tow/in that is off, will do will you saw happen to your old tires, and shake till you drive faster till you get it past the shaking?

    Find a good MD Alignment place, they will tight your bearings with DR Preload and do a good alignment

    the most shaking is coming around 45 and around 65 you can tell something is bouncing but with low frequency

    I used to have air ride on last truck and lots more things that could go wrong , air springs, valves fittings leaking, height out of specs.
    I would check the hubs , spring bushings shackle pins and bushings even drive line out of balance, hanger bearing, transmission output shaft and u-joints play. If the truck was towed and driveshaft removed , check if was not re-installed out of phase.
