Hey all

I have an 04 ZX3. has 87k miles on it. I've developed this weird shimmy in the front right when i go above 65 but levels off above 70.It's shimmying enough that it's creating a ripple on the inner wall of my tire that i can feel when i run my hand against it.
Does anyone know/had this problem before? Could it be a CV joint or ball joint?
Also had an alignment done and it didn't help.
Thanks in advance

If you can feel a "ripple" in the sidewall of the tire, it's a tire problem that's creating the shimmy.......not the other way around. Rotate the wheels front to back, I'll bet the front end "shimmy" becomes a vibration in the back. BUT, by the sound of it, don't do any high speed driving until that tire gets replaced.

Well we did rotate the tires and the shimmy was still there leading me to believe it's not the tire cause i highly doubt i would have 2 bad tires out of 4.
