I have to say this left me disappointed in my first Jeep purchase experience, not sure if I will own another. If anyone finds a way in improving on this issue please post.
I'm considering upgrading my sway bars to the SRT ones and changing out shocks to Bilstein a couple of members have done this saying it really tightens
things up, not sure if it would help us or make things worse.
Any constant shimmy and vibration in the steering wheel on smooth highway road surfaces is not normal. Just because a shop or dealer has a road force balancer doesnt mean they know how to use it properly. I went though alot with the shaking tires and moving to a dealer that knew how to properly road force balance fixed it. Try a different dealer with road force balancer.
The tires could also be out of round and need replaced, i only went 10k on my stock tires before i decided they were garbage and replaced them.
Concerning the feedback in the steering wheel over bumps unfortunately that seems to be just a characteristic of the suspension, mine does that as others i have driven also do.
