Unfortunately you cannot diagnose this without a known set of non-shaking tires on a known set of un-bent rims. Tire shops can balance a set of improperly made tires 1000 times and it won't make a difference. They can also change out a set of tires 1000 times for other improperly manufactured tires and nothing will change and every "balancing machine" will also tell you that they are perfectly balanced when they are not.

I think you should find someone with another 4runner that does not shake on the highway, change out their tires for yours and drive around to confirm once and for all that you truly do not have a tire problem.

I had to do this to prove to the tire shop that literally every Goodyear tire in their shop was not round. All of the tires in their shop were manufactured egg shaped and after 4 (yes FOUR) completely new sets on four different sets of brand new rims being balanced over 40 times, I went and found someone with a set of General tires on factory 4runner rims and Holy Hell!! all the shaking was gone at all speeds!! It was as if I had just accomplished the impossible and it took the tire shop manager about 30 minutes of head shaking to finally realize that it was indeed the tires the entire time and there was nothing wrong with any part of the 4runner.
agreed. my issue started immediately after getting new tires. had those rebalanced 3 times, and then finally had a second set installed. still had the shakes. got my 3rd set put on a few days ago, and its back to being nice and smooth.

Iíve got a update and would like yíallís opinion. I took it back in to the dealer one last time for the shaking and loose feeling in the steering and they said the steering column shaft had lots of play and recommended replacing for $580. Does that seem reasonable compared to what others have paid? They also mentioned that the steering rack is binding a little on the drivers side and recommend replacing that also. I never notice any binding and really canít justify paying $2000 to have that done also.
