Default still working on it...

I keep "almost" fixing this problem but there is still a little bit of vibration left. The alignment seemed to help quite a bit, new rotors got rid of some vibration, new tie rods helped, but...

There is still a little bit of WHOM...WHOM.. WHOM. I feel it at 45-50 mph and at about 70 mph. It'* not extremely noticeable but I know it'* there. It sounds a little faster at 70. Probably is a bad wheel hub/bearing. That sucks because the hub is barely 12 months old. Question is: if there is noise but you can't feel any play in the wheel, will it ruin any of my other parts? Or can I run it for awhile without fear of damage?

My '01 SSEI had the exact same problem at those exact same speeds. I replaced the wheels hubs and got new tires and it never fixed the issue. I sold it because of those problems. I hope you can diagnose the issue.

I finally got around to replacing that wheel hub with a new Timken. No vibrations whatsoever now!
