I would have them balanced first unless you think this may be a good time to get new tires...they should be balanced at the time of mounting anyway..why pay for it twice. Then take it from there.

You have a fairly common problem with the R/T's. DC has a TSB for the vibration that involves replacing the tailshaft of the tranny and replacing the driveshaft. www.nhtsa.gov has a database for all TSB's and recalls by model.

I hate dealing with them too. It is like pulling teeth to get them to do anything. If you are still under warranty, than you're covered. If not, it is on your coin. I had to print out the TSB and physically put it in the service writers hand for them to even acknowledge it existed. They told me it was only for 4x4 R/T's!?!?!? Its pretty sad when they don't even know their own product.
