2005 focus zx4 120,000 miles. At speeds of 55-65,there is a shimmy/shake in the steering wheel. At 70 and over it is hardly noticeable. Would this be caused by a tire out of balance or a worn suspension part? Suspension is stock and has never been replaced that I know of,have had the car since 65,000 miles. Around 10,000 miles on the tires. thanks!!

Balance/tire

Anything else loose can make it worse, but it can happen with everything tight.

Old shocks aren't helping to dampen much at this point.

Had the same problem, it usually is the wheels out of balance. And yes, your car definitely could use new dampers ?
