I believe this may have accidently been posted to the wrong catagory or is the result of a website issue. I am not familiar with any "Playstation 3" trucks.

This could be caused by many different things. It could be as simple as a problem with the tires, tire balancing, etc.
If it's more of a "shimmy" than a shake, then it's most likely the front wheels doing it.
Your wheel bearings or hub assemblies may need to be replaced. Some models allow for easy replacement of bearing hub assemblies, which depending on the make and model, could be as cheap as about $30 per side, or as much as $100 or more per side, but relatively easy for a do-it-yourself job, so long as you have the tools.
If your make and model does not use replacable assemblies, then it would require having a shop do some press work to remove the worn bearings and then press in a new set.
I've done both types on my personal vehichles within the last 6 years or so, both are reasonably easy to do for most DIY home mechanics or anybody with a decent set of tools and a socket big enough for the main hub nut, but without an arbor press or hydraulic press available, the non-"assembly" type of repair will require a shop.
For vehichles that do have assemblies available, you simply lock up the parking break and make sure the vehichle is in park, jack the vehichle, use jackstands for safety, then remove the front wheel. Then if disc brakes, remove brake calliper, which is usually held in place by one or two bolts and hand using wire such as a coathanger to not pull on the brake lines, slide off the brake disk, remove any caps or covering over the axle hub nut. Buy or find a socket big enough for the hub nut and brake it loose using a large rachet if possible, or a breaker bar.
The hub bearing assembly should have three or four bolts holding it on. Once they are removed, you should be able to slide the hub off of the axle and replace with new assembly. Some vehichles will have different hub assemblies based on the wheel size and lug nut bolt hole pattern, so have the factory tire size info available when looking for the replacement part. Repeat for opposite side.
Since the vehichles that do not have replacable assemblies require a shop most often for the presswork, if that is the case, you may prefer to simply have a shop do all of the work. Otherwise, the proceeder is similar, except that you would need to remove the entire hub, which risks losing alignment and may need to have the wheels realigned afterwards. Then take the whole hub and hub frame to a shop to have the bearings removed and replaced, or you may elect to try that yourself, if you happen to have a press available. Tricky problems to watch for while trying this at home would be trying to prevent any change in wheel alignment since the control arms would need to be removed from the hub, worn control arm studs could require replacement before making replacement of hub possible, and you would be fighting against shock or strut compression while remounting the hub.

What could be the problem, when i drive my man26.480 truck over 60km/h the truck shakes and vibrates

When you drive the truck at lower speeds, the weight of the truck neutralizes the vibrations. As you speed above 60km /hour, the tires start to vibrate, the circular motion of the tires create a force away from the center of tires, imagine a roulette, that like dice wants to stay away from the center, until the wheel slows down.To compensate for this force, tires are checked for balance. So balancing your tires, hopefully wlil solve your issue.

Shimmy of rear driver tire

Check for a shifted belt in that tire. You'll probably have to lift it and turn it to check for any wobbling. It could also be out of balance.

Who is doing the work on your truck ?

Did they put in the problem or never
were asked to resolve it?

You can pretty much tell as you remove
brake parts, if they were in any way related
to the shimmy.

Sounds to me that issue has never been worked on

2007 DODGE RAM 1500 CASTER ON RIGHT SIDE WONT COME INTO SPEC GETTING SOME SHIMMY?? truck has 95,000 miles was last aligned with about 40,000 miles after a tire blowout and a bent rim alignment was...

The actual caster spec is not very significant - the handling is what counts. The caster will not cause a shimmy. Shimmy could be caused by tire problems, worn or damaged steering or suspension parts, bad shock absorbers or a bent wheel. As long as the vehicle does not pull and the handling is satisfactory, the caster is OK, If the tires are not wearing and the vehicle hamdles OK - don't worry about "specs." I have done a LOT of alignments where the readings did not match the specs, but the result was satisfactory.

2001 Ford Ranger SRS brakeks and bearing problems

Your truck has sealed bearings in the front but they can go bad after several miles. If the truck is not stopping straight or you are getting a pulse through the break pedal (and sometimes a shimmy in the steering) then it's time to replace the rotors and pads. If the truck is stopping and driving fine then I wouldn't worry about it.

I have a 1998 olds bravada. when driving, the truck shimmys from side to side. Ball joints are good, tie rods good, hubs are good and alignment is good. small amount of play in both idler arm and pittman...

I don,t think this can cause a shimmy, there should only be some play in the steering wheel. Check the tirs and see if any belts are broken wthin and for visible bulges, this can cause a shimmy. Also if you are not the original owner, is it possible that someone hit a curbe and bent the spindle a tad. I knew of a GMC Safari that had this problem.
