Vibration Issue

Hello all, I just bought a 2005 XLT 4x4, 4.0, 5 speed. I'm having a vibration problem starting around 65mph. It's a slight body vibration kind of on the right side. It's mostly just annoying, but the interesting thing is I had a 99 XLT before this one that did the exact same thing, and when I say exact I mean exact, lol. On the 99 I tried getting it aligned and high speed balancing and that didn't seem to work, so I don't know if it's going to help on my 05. Is this a Ranger thing? Has anybody else experienced this? Thx.

Hi Ranger2017, still dealing with it. I did find that my tires were all underinflated. I don't think it's alignment because it steers nice and straight. Everything I've read seems to point to the need for a computer high speed balancing. None of my wheels have weights on them so I find that odd too. I'm getting the high speed balancing done next weekend, so we'll see, thanks for your reply.

Thanks Bjvandi a couple of weeks ago I had all for wheels balance with a road force balancer and the front end aligned. The balance was quite bad as well as the alignment so that did the the trick.
