trucks shaking!! help

my 95 2wd has a terrible shaking problem and i cannot figure out where it is coming from. from 0 to 50 its fine, but when i get betwen 55-75, it feels like my truck is going to shake apart! its not a 'death wobble' and it done it when it had stock tires. its aligned, and tires are balanced

Have you checked any other front end parts? Ball joints, tie rods, make sure everything is good and everything is tight?

After you check the above, get the tires rebalanced. You think they're balanced right, but I worked for a service center before and a lot of times the machines are wrong due to them being used so much without calibration. Also, how old are the tires? They can balance out fine, but due to the tire being old, once it gets load on it, the balance is off.

all the front end parts are fine, and the front tires have 80% tread and the back have abt 25%.

Do you have mud or something in the rims? My truck does the same thing when I have a lot of mud on the tires/rims. Could also just be shotty balance job.

If it did it with more than one set of tires, Replace the front u-joint on the drive shaft. When you install the new one , rotate the yoke 180 degrees from where it is now.
Someone probably replaced it once and didn't put it back together right and threw the shaft out of balance.
