    Hi,

    ive had a really annoying vibration on the front passenger side for along time now. it seems worse when i first get in the car for a mile or so and then settles down but then gets gradually worse as i pick up speed. i dont feel it very much on the drivers side and i only get a small amount of vibration through the steering wheel. but if you sit in the passenger seat its like sitting on a tumble dryer just constant vibration.

    recently ive had wheel bearing replaced, new pads and disks, new top mounts and dogbone mount. nothing seems to have sorted it. anyone got any ideas?

    Wheels balanced and all tyre pressures correct?

    Drive shaft or cv joint?

    Does it get worse and certain speeds then better at even higher speeds?

    I.e. really bad at 50mph but ok at 80mph (on a private road officer).

    its hard to say, i dont notice it so much when im driving. i would say it gets worse at 50mph but doesnt get any worse after that, so stays the same.

    ive had cv go before and i usually get a knocking sound when turning which i dont have
