As for the shudder at low speed (how low?) this is a common problem with GM models and is the power-steering. I find that at slow hard turns of 5-10 mph the car makes a small grinding noise and its do to the extra strain on the PS.
It sounds like a spooling turbo under jims hood when reversing into spots. I thought I broke something @ first....

Yes, my secret turbo mod

I plan on getting new tires within the next few months, so that will check out the balancing etc. Then alignment if necessary

Thanks for the feeback
