thank you.. hope u have an answer for...
The shimmy is mostly likely being caused by one of two things either your alignment is out or one of your tires is bubbling or warped take it to Les Schwab and ask them to check it. I had the same probelm years ago when I had my Civic, for example I had driven on snow chains on bare ground for one too many miles and caused channels to form in the shape of my chains on the tire which caused a biggggggg shimmy. Live and learn I was only 16.
