HELP!! Vibration in front suspension/engine

Hey everyone I am trying to diagnose an issue with my 04' ZX3. When you drive it around there is a lot of vibration that comes through the steering wheel and seems to shake the interior pretty bad. I find thought about something going bad in the suspension but it does not pull to any one side and drives straight. It almost sounds like something is rubbing, but when you push in the clutch, the vibration goes away. I drive 130 miles round trip for work and the car feels unsafe to drive.

I took it up to my local suspension shop and they looked at the entire suspension and did not find any worn out parts. The car sometimes idles really rough and shakes the change in my ash tray too.

It has new plugs, wires, and coil pack. What should I look at next? The car has a little over 132,000 miles on it. A buddy of mine suggested motor or trans mounts worn out? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.
