This sounds very much like a wheel balance problem.  Cheap and easy to
fix, unless one or more tires need replacement or a wheel is damaged.


"Hello all. 

In anticipation of a cold weekend under the car, I wonder if anyone has an
idea for what might cause a sudden occurrence of road noise and vibration
my 3500s? I've determined only that it is not engine-related, as the
vibration does not stop when I shift into neutral and coast. The vibration
came on suddenly at about 60 mph, and now begins at about 45 mph, and is
quite pronounced if I go over 50. Tires all look fine, but that deserves
closer inspection. 

Thanks in advance for any recommendations you might have.

Peter King"
