OK so I've had a slight vibration in my car for quite some time now. I feel it the most at around 80 km/hr and it feels as though it is coming from the mid to rear of the car. Lately I've also noticed that there is a slight whining sound from the left rear while I am coasting. I took it to 3 places including the dealership and they say that everything looks fine. So far I tried balancing the tires (3 times), replacing a control arm, and replacing a tire (suspected separated belt).
And today I switched to my summer rims/tires and the drive felt worse. I am so fed up I feel like changing out all the wheel bearings and doing a full suspension swap. Problem is that cash is tight and I don't even know if that will solve the problem.
So what order should I start replacing stuff?
