70mph steering wheel shimmy
wheels are bal.
tires rotated
Tires any good?
Does shimmy disappear when tires rotated?
When tires are being balanced, are they checking the roadforce?

Mileage on car?
Worn struts will allow the suspension to oscillate because they won't dampen the small movements...and they can become "amplified" especially at their resonate frequency.. A bounce can often be interpreted as a shimmy felt in the steering wheel... Something to consider..
