vibration

car has steering wheel shimmy at >20mph and more noticeable at highway speeds. At higher speed, vibration in the seats can also be noticed. I've rotated tires front to back, side to side. regular and road force balanced rims without any improvement which convinces me it's not in the tires or rims. My steering wheel is centered and the car tracks pretty straight. What next? I have oem continental RFT. I drive 120miles per day and the steering wheel is numbing my arm day after day. At 1st I thought it was just nature of RFT but now I'm wondering if I should get the front bushings looked at. Can I tell myself if they're bad? Can any local shops check them? and must I use parts from the dealer or?

Sounds like a balance issue in the front and back. You might wanna try getting the wheels balanced somewhere else or bring them back and let the shop manager drive the car.
