    Hey so i lifted my 2017 4runner off road 3 inches added Anzana fuel rims with 30 inch tires and my steering wheel started shaking at 60 to 65 no big woop. Told my self alignment and balance will fix it so I took it in now it shakes at 40 to 60 mph. My wife took it back as i was at work and they said it was the tires and to help a bar needs to be replaced. Not sure what bar but has any one had this problem?

    I would take it to another shop, and not mention you had it looked at. See what they tell you.

    Yeah, that seems a little over the top replacing a brand new rigs "axle". You are in the right mind set @Art1988 and spot on @SlvrSlug . A proper wheel balance and alignment will do the trick. If they are having a hard time with balancing the wheels, it could be a manufacturer defect and fuel might have to get you a replacement wheel or two (sometimes happens).
