All I've done about this has been a wheel alignment and wheel balance. It made some difference, but I think the issue may be a dying suspension part. I'll update if anything changes and I notice a...

Thanks. I've read threads where some have done the service around 60k. I'm currently at 52k and doubt the previous owner had it done. Should I get it done prior to that you think?
