    Default Shimmy at 120 KPH partially solved...

    I had a nasty shimmy... if we can call it that... starting from 120 KPH and up. It was definitely felt through the steering wheel. After topping off the power steering fluid, the shakes were gone. Of course, I could still detect a slight shake which I suspect will be cured with an alignment (due!). Just thought I'd throw it out there. Low PS fluid definitely amplified the problem as there probably wasn't enough pressure to hold it.

    did you check the wheel balance? Also when their under there take a look around and make sure everything in the steering is tight.
