Q: Front end shimmy on 2005 Ford Focus

Since new, there is a pronounced front end shimmy. Comes on at about 35 mph and goes away at 40 mph. Have had tires balanced and rotated and front end aligned - no effect. Any ideas on cause and fix?

Thanks

Sounds like out of balance condition, but I have a old GTO that did the same thing and the tire shop installed new tires and balanced them and it still had a shimmy, so went to a different shop and had the tires rebalanced and sure enough on of the tires was out of balance
