True, but this car had more problems than I was willing to throw money at such as the driver door didn't belong to the car and the hood didn't line up with the fenders.

It's not the recommended way, but it worked and I only mentioned it as an anecdotal solution to the issue described that fixed this issue for me.

We understand that not every car is the same and was mentioned to facilitate thinking outside the box as there are numerous solutions to this issue. No need to be hostile sir/madam amc.

For all we know ATM the solution could be a motor mount, suspension, wheel bearing, fuel, etc.

Car has 137k, 5 speed, but theres no noise from the front bearings either but that still doesnt mean much, and no other symptom but a vibration. No misfires, or less vibration/more when turning a direction, doesnt matter on or off the throttle, in gear or neutral, clutch in our out,braking or not, engine on or off. Definitely an odd issue to track down. Its definitely not a tire imbalance.

To reiterate post 11..
Car has ALL new mounts, plugs, rear wheel bearings/Drums, both front control arms/ball joints, brakes are not warped, rear shocks, intermediate shaft, passenger axle, all 4 tires balanced out (twice), no play in the wheel bearings or tie rods, Fuel is not an issue as its been to different stations and only seen top tier fuel.

Does it feel like it's more towards the front or the rear? If so, put the front tires on the rear and rear tires on the front. Tires can be bad, I have seen it personally.

So 52-80? Does it continues after 80?

had a wheel bearing that spoke up about 40-70, it was more of a grindy vibration but it was quiet below 40 and above 70, it took a few weeks to figure out as everything was still "good"

Mix of front and rear,

That has been done, no difference. I know its possible but for all four being new inst too common. When on the balancer there was none out of round. Not a grinding vibration either.

Havent personally try past 80 as theres no real need for me to do it since this is just a gas saver for work lol

So all that is left to replace is the inner and outer ties rods, drivers side axle, front wheel bearings and rear control arms? Lol. I'm sure the tie rods are toast..

Have you tried putting the car in neutral while the vibration is occurring?

Tie rods are good, they move as they're suppose to and no play.
