Bad vibration from front left when over 55 mph
 
Has anyone experience any issues with wheel or hub vibration when over these speeds 55 mph. Weird thing is it is as smooth as hell like butter below those speeds but at or above the front vibrates like driving on cobble stones , also feels like front hub has tiny play but is this possible that the front left hub has gone bad and not made a noise after many many miles.

L99, have you had your vehicle checked over by your dealer or are you looking to diagnose this yourself?

Also scheduled an appointment to have dealership check it. Also plan to go with coils so this may solve the issue.

Did you ever find out what the problem was?

Sounds like a tire issue to me, I'd have the tires and wheels road force balanced before i would condemn a wheel bearing.

When the vibration happens over a small speed range, it's a balancing problem.

This is because at 55 or 60, the unbalance is rotating at the resonant frequency of the sprung weight of the wheel.

Oh that was my 2011 but the issue was when I had my headers the freaking shop that installed them did not tighten the intermediate shaft bolt where the shaft connects to the steering rack tight enough. Over time it got more loose and wore the hole where the shaft meets the steering rack. Fix was to get a new intermediate shaft at my cost and had the dealership install it. During header install make sure the shop properly tightens the shaft bolt.
