Exclamation Nasty Shake!

I have an 07 4-door, i replaced all the springs with lowering springs, im running 17in rims with 205/40 tires...i knocked the car out of allignment this past winter when i was out drifting in the snow, i had it realligned but i still have a bad shimy. i need to get a front and rear camber kit, but would that cause a bad shimy? i dont remember it ever being this bad after i originally lowered the car...a little insight?

How did you knock the alignment out? Did you hit something. If so, you could have damaged a steering component like a tie rod or bent a control arm. These should have been discovered at time of alignment. But things like a damaged tie rod end, bushings, or a bent wheel, or tire balance would not be.

Bet you have a bent rim, look on the inside of the rim as well.

you could have knocked off the wheel weight off or bent some suspension parts.I would get the wheels balanced and at the same time have them look over the suspension and steering components.
