I have a 2007 EXT and notice when sitting in park and drive it appears to have a little shimmy/shake. anyone else notice it?

What grade of fuel are you using? pistons knocking maybe? Don't take my word for it though.

As said what grade fuel do you use, and how many miles are on your truck?

At one point (approx. 3000 miles) my idle in gear felt a little rough to me, so I upped the "in gear idle" RPM by 50 RPM with my Preditor and it fixed it. Then, later, I brought it back to stock RPM (at about 6000 miles) and everything was fine too. So, whatever it was originally was a temporary condition - at least for me - maybe I got some bad gasoline. Bottom line, first things I would do are either raise RPM by 50 for now or wait it out with a new tank of gas.

You should not have a problem, on your tach what does it read at ldle, is it under 600 rpms?

Mine is just over 600, I believe I raised mine with the Preditor too

Mine is at 600-650, idle IN GEAR. Before, when it was a little rough, it was 550-600.
