Thanks for the input...

My steering is fairly precise but we've done alignment, balancing, repack F L/R bearings, and new tires. These made things back to 95%, but there's still some shimmy. We checked the ball-joints/bushings on the mentioned parts and they have some play. I figured it's time to replace them any how...

Also, when coming up a driveway at an angle while turning, it feels there's something loose like a clinging sound. This was reduced after repacking the bearings but it's still there... less noticeable...
