Well, my next question is how are the road conditions? Where if Florida are you? One thing about the car I've noticed, it's very sensitive to the road, even more so after suspension upgrades. Smooth roads yield a nice smooth ride, rough roads can be... hmm... well some have been scary... painful... noisy... bumpy... fun...

the only thing that i could think of is to get your tired balanced again and if that doesn't work either, then check if your car needs an alignment.. other than that i don't know.. good luck.

A guy at work had shakey tires on the front of his Nissan Pathfinder.
Some goofball comedian at work put a gallon of water in each tire.
It was unknoticable until it got cold and the water froze.
Then it was god awful shakey.

Nitrogen

All Nitrogen does bad is lighten your wallet.

Do you by chance have the Pirelli 235/55/17 tires? They are a bitch to get balanced properly. They develop flat spots very quickly if they sit for to long. If you have the ZERO tires, have a tire shop check them over for flat spots and get a GOOD balance on them. I too had that problem with the P ZERO Pirellis.
