whisky is an unknown quantity at this point
If you feel vibration, then its possibly an issue with Control Arm Bushing.. Replacing bushing might help. Get that checked

when braking?

while driving? if while driving, at what speed does it start and what speed does it stop? OR is it always vibrating all speeds?

how you car reacts to these Q's will help to pinpint your problem.
