    If your refering to "death wobbles" usually the sweet spot is around 80k's but not always. Usually need a little bump to set it off then just builds till it's quite violent with the wheel shaking fron one side to the other and the car shaking like buggery. . Once it happens you'll know about it lol, they're a bugger that's 4 sure. .

    Just imagine your steering wheel shaking when you need to get your wheels balanced..... but 50 times worse. Mine have happened anywhere between 60-100kph. First time was bearings, 2nd time was panhard bar bushes. Third time was due to the passenger side crappy GQ hub nut coming loose.

    How high is high speed, how did they balance your tyres, did they use fingers through the wheel stud holes?

    Is vibration coming through the steering wheel or through the car?

    Between 100-110 and I balanced the sunnys myself and the vibrations was through car and wheel, but I have worked most of the problems out my diff was out of alignment causing drive line vibrations and the tyres have had it, one fell apart when I was debeeding it so I had to put the spare on and suddenly nearly all the problems were gone
