Shaking steering wheel.

My 79' street 930's steering wheel starts to shake quite a bit the faster I go. When i hit 80-90mph it shook so much I had to slow down quickly. I've lowered it front and back and put a bump steer kit but did not change any bushings or shocks. Is it the alignment or needs bushings?

Most of the time, a shaking steering wheel indicates a wheel/tire problem (out of ballance, bent, out of true or cracked wheel, damaged tire - bulged/chunked) . . . have you checked any of this yet?

Stupid question, are the lug nuts tight?

My 930 does the same thing even though my alignment/camber has been checked. New tires solved the issue but I can feel the shimmy slowly coming back.

mine did this until i had it balanced properly. insist on having it balanced properly. i know when they did mine the second time they overinflated the tires to seat them on the rim. i think the term was a centerline balance? I'm not sure though.

Depending on how slight or violent the "shaking" is the wheel bearing tension could also be suspect and is often overlooked and very easy to adjust.
