bad vibrations?
i dont know if ne1 else has had this problem but when i hit around 70+ then the car starts vibrating and its kinda worrisome. i've had and alignment done just a few weeks ago and it didnt fix it at all. i do need new front tires but i dont know if that would affect the vibrations that badly. im wondering if it might b something with the shocks, springs or something. i'm just looking 4 a little feedback on what you guys thing might b the cause of the vibrations b4 i spend $$$$$ on going 2 a shop and letting them take the car 4 god knows how long. so any advise on what i could check on would be greatly appreciated.

yup toyota said, we cant fix it because the speed limit is 65 and thats all they can test drive at, yeah right! anyway, a local trusted tire shop said their balencing machine spins at like 55 mph. so if i dont really feel anything in the wheel at that speed, it is probably improper toe of the front end. beats me, ill wait till i lower it to get an allignment. anyway mine doesnt vibrate till 80-85mph


Where did my sig go? help me find it..........
