my car shake and vibrates when travelling above 80mph.

im not sure what could be the cause whether tracking or aliment
what has been checked so far?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.


usually this is a simple wheel balance issue so the first step would be to have the wheels all road force balanced


if the problem persists, the other possible causes would be a poor alignment, a sticking brake caliper, or suspension wear, but these are much less likely than wheel balance


having balance checked / reset is very cheap, so you should definitely start there
