Re: shakin, and shimying(sp) (ProjectFoxx)

Could be your tires have a flat spot. Or bearings, or even a tire out of balance.
I'd start by replacing one front tire at a time with a full sized spare. This will tell you either which side the problem is on or that it's not the tires. If it's not the tires, I'd check and regrease the wheel bearings and inspect all the suspension parts to make sure nothing's going out on you. If it is a tire, have the balance checked. Assuming the balance is good, you're probably looking at an out of round tire from sitting too long in one place, locking up the brakes, etc.
Had this trouble on my old cabby, went away when I got all new rubber.
