    Steering wheel shake

    I know this has been asked from time to time.

    When i hit 65-85 on the gas the car shakes, when I stop acclerating the shake gets worse.

    Im running Falken Euro winters, just had them rebalanced the front passenger side was off an onuce, My struts are leaking at 48,000 miles, have a call in with the dealer, everthign else checks out, ball joints are tight and nothing looks bent. Wheels are clean from snow and ice.

    Any insight as to what else i can check.

    Going by your username this is a 2008?

    Is the wheel getting wobbly, is there a heavy pounding feel in it, or does it just vibrate more than normal?
