Hello,

I've got a vibration in what seems to be the front end that I've been chasing for almost a year at this point. I've thrown money and parts at it, but it persists. It typically starts around 100kmh. Strangely enough the problem gets worse on certain types of road and warmer temps. Its as if the more grip the tires get, the worse the problem is. Took it into vickar Nissan (idiots) and they did two inspections only to tell me everything is fine. They then wanted to charge me money for a more in depth 3rd inspection on an autopac claim. Last time I will go there....anyways...hoping some g/z owners could chime in that maybe experienced this before. Thanks.

What I've done so far:
New wheel bearings in the front (drivers side)
New ball joint (drivers side)
New upper ball joints (both sides)
New compression rod (passenger side)
New (used) struts from 350z (both sides)
New LCA (passenger side)
New outer tierod ends (both sides)
Inner tierod  (drivers side)
Tries multiple rim and tire combos
Alignment ( not sure how good though)
Wheel balancing at one point.

    once the vibration starts does it change with rpm?

      Do you have a second set of wheels you can throw on the car to test? I see that you put that you got the wheels balanced but it could be a tire issue.

        ^ says they tried multiple wheel and tire combos

        That's frustrating man, being unable to find the source of an issue. Maybe steering rack bushings?

          Vibration felt in the steering wheel only?
          So you did not try an alignment?

            how are your front brakes? I've seen some rotors with heavy rust build up and a bunch on one side flake off and cause vibration issues. Do you feel the vibration in the steering wheel or the whole car vibrates? I'd give the rear axles a good check over and make sure the CV's don't have play, if its AWD (not sure if coupes came that way) I'd give the front axles a good look over too and check the hanger bearing on the driveshaft if its 2 pc as well as drive shaft CV's if applicable.
