    OK, so popping the plate was only a temporary fix. Car had to be towed home from Grocery store.

    The root cause is that the steering wheel lock mechanism breaks. This is where the "little metal...

    Check all engine mounts. Cross brace mounts also. I think the cross brace starts resonating at 75 mph if the mounts are bad. Zip tie it and see if it helps.

    OK, so front right (passenger) engine mount made a HUGE difference. Small bump jitter almost all gone... car feels connected to road. Significant reduction in "unbalance" as well, but still there....

    I'm having similar problem... but CV joints seem OK (very little play, no broken boots, slide in/out easily). Any method to diagnose, besides replacement?

    Sorry for the long time between updates, but car has been frustrating.

    Upper and lower mounts replaced. Car fells better, but no effect on vibration. Rained today and seemed worse. Taking to mechanic Friday.

    @JRL, Nice ride! When you say you rebuilt the entire suspension, do you mean shocks, controls arms, bearings, etc? Is there a kit you can order?

    So I discovered that my upper engine mount was...

    Thanks, I agree with the bad tire.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to imply the original wheel size, just a combination of the size with the crappy tire.

    How can I diagnose the bad wheel bearing? No...

    OK, so I figure out what was my problem.
    1) Tires were at 35 psi versus 38 psi. Dropped down to 30, and improved ride. Now back at 38. Ride still OK.
    2) On smooth roads, rides very smooth. On rough...
  12. similar problem

    By drive train, do you mean the driveshaft bearing ? This wouldn't disappear.

    By suspension, do thou mean the row ends, sway bars or what ? Possible.

    By shafts, do you mean wheel bearings ?...

    Not sure how your system works, but the 2003 xc90 had a Sirius module inserted inline before the amp. I removed the stupid module and amp works great. Now I have a spare amp, at least.
