That engine uses a timing chain to time the cam and crankshaft sprockets, the balance shaft is driven directly by gear to gear contact and should never go out of time like a n engine that would time the balance shaft with a separate timing belt.I would get a second opinion and hope the imbalance is sometime more simple. With a professional grade scan tool look for misfire counts and anything in Mode 6 that may not yet be severe enough to set a code. May be first get your mechanic to try this.

Mine did this couple years ago. Buick Park Avenue problem with suspension components. Getting new tires and balancing them helps. Replacing the suspect componnts helped as well. Still have vibration, but not nearing as bad. Ours does it at 70 but lessens at 80.
