2006 f150 shake

I have a 2006 F150 4x4 w/72 K on it. Bought it new from dealership. Started having a shake in the steering wheel @ 70 mph @ about 25K. Took it to the dealer and was told it was the Pirelli high performance tires (stock). Was told that the tires needed to be ran 5 to 10 miles after setting for 8 hrs. to get flattend back out before it would run smooth again @ 70 mph. I have replaced the rotors w/oem motorcraft, brake pads and tires w/pirelli scorpions, the same that came on it new. The shake on the passenger sidefront is getting worse.....at 70 mph and up. I'm not sure what to do next but am considering replacing the rack and pinion unit @ a cost of $285.00 and would be glad to do it if I knew it would fix the shake. Any advice would be helpful...signed shaking @ 74 mph w/a 74 mile commute one way in Texas. Helllllp!

Re: 2006 f150 shake

The rack and pinion doesn't have anything to do with a vibration or shake. It has to be the tires or wheel. Something is out of balance. It could even be the axle but not as likely. Have you tried a tire shop to see if they can find anything?

I'd try a tire rotation and go from there.
