Re: strange sounds in my R/T CC

My R/T had about 6 miles on it when I picked it up and it also was pretty
far out of alignment. The wheel was crooked when going straight, the truck
pulled to the right and it vibrated at 80mph. The dealer re-aligned it and
balanced the tires and its much better now except for a faint high frequency
washboard style vibration at 90mph that goes away at around 100. I think it
may be driveshaft alignment or balance. No clunking whatsoever under any
conditions, at least so far.
