    I'd appreciate info from anyone who owns a 2008 Ranger, 4-cylinder, that has experienced a slight shimmy in the front end during highway speeds of 60-65 MPH, which then "goes away" at a higher speed. My truck is not rattling my legs off but it is noticeable. I haven't had the front end alignment checked yet, but thought I'd check here for anyone who had a similar problem and what their solution to the problem turned out to be. Many thanks for all responses??

    +1 to Tom Autry's comment, and I will add, VERY likely.

    Tom could be hitting it! Try rotating your tires and see if it changes drastically, if so get them balanced
