just started to happen a couple of days ago.

at highway speeds 75+, i could feel some sort of vibration. its like a moving vibration where i would feel the vibration on my foot and it will slowly rise up and then i'll feel it on the steering wheel. the whole vibration from pedal to steering wheel will last for about 5 seconds and then it will stop. after about 5 seconds of smooth driving, i'll start feeling the vibration on the pedal again and it will start rising up then stop. it repeats itself - 5 seconds of vibration and 5 seconds smooth.

ideas?

75+?! Have you tried slowing down a bit? lol, jk.

I'd try rotating the tires first to see that makes a difference. Could be a wheel out of balance or just worn differently. My other thoughts are wheel bearings or the many joints in the front suspension. I'd probably start there by checking for play in the tie rod ends and lower control arms. Just some ideas.

Does it change as you swerve left or right?
