I can feel the car vibrate when driving between 45 and 60 mph and under 2K rpm. This "only" happens when driving at this speed. I can clearly feel it on the steering wheel but I think the vibration could be originating from the engine. I just installed new tires that were balanced and aligned.
5K miles prior, I had the a new center link & idler arm installed because they were loosed and off centered. However, problem persists. What else could be causing the vibration?
Is there some type of torque controller that may need replacement?
There are several pieces of the front suspension that do cause this specific issue, I'd say you covered some of them, but the front control arms are part of the problem. FCP Groton have a kit which addresses all the usual suspects, but I don't think that you will need the full set.
