With my 01 OB wagon (automatic) air pressure differences in the front tires can increase vibration very similar to a tire or two out of balance. Simple enough to check.

You have to be careful about that one. Enough of a pressure difference on the front two can result in the front differential speed averaging below the rear. This can overheat the center diffy wet clutch and burn the ATF.

Agree! I found that I had about about 4 psi difference in the two front tires. (I got lazy in checking) A very minor out-of-balance issue felt way more pronounced. The two rear were OK and at spec. One front tire wass at spec.
