Question Question for a focus fanatic

I will cut to the chase. I have had a vibration problem since I bought this vehicle as is. Replaced with a set of 6 new tires, 2 were not balancing. Had a full car alignment and have replaced the Passenger engine mount and torque strut mount, transmission mount looks great. My problem. The vibration occurs between 50mph and greater, not very consistent, always happens at those speeds but is varying in vibration. So intemitent between a scale of 1-10, between a 4-7 inconsistently. CV Joints are fine, sway bars are fine, hub is fine, but then noticed that the Torque strut mount was completely screwed and needs to be replaced and just changed it out 4 months ago, had this same problem before and after the replacement of mounts so any ideas to the underlying cause to this problem causing vibration. I have tried to include as much information as possible to exclude some obvious incorrect answers, help is greatly appreciated, have a low budget and want to get this fixed. Thanks

You'll be much better off if you start you own thread with this question. In here, only 10 or 20 people are going to see this while a new thread will get the whole forum looking.

Nice spot you picked to post this. :P My first thought was CV axle. But you replaced those. My next thought was motor mounts. You replaced those. DO your rims have any bends? I had a vibration problem with my car before but it was because my wheel had a bend in it. Check that. If thats not it then make your own thread as suggested. You wouldnt definetly get alot more help! lol
