Car: 2007 Pontiac G6 (3.5L engine)

Problem: Front-end vibration

Details:

  • I feel the vibrations primarily in the steering wheel. However, I also slightly feel it in my foot resting on the gas pedal and floor and ever so slightly in my seat.

  • The vibrations start around 20-30mph but continue through at least 80mph

  • I feel it while going straight and also while turning.

  • There is no sound (humming, banging, etc); just the feeling of vibration.

  • Braking doesn't seem to worsen or fix the issue.

What could be causing this?

Notes:

  • I just replaced the wheel hub/bearing on my front right wheel.

  • I've quadruple checked the lugnuts -- they're tight on both front wheels.

  • I think my front right brake caliper is stuck, but I do not think this is the source of my vibration because the pads are not smoking or burning, so could it really be dragging that badly??

  • tires appear to be in good shape with relatively even wear. (Nothing suspect).

My Thoughts:

  • Since the vibration is constant at most speeds, it seems unlikely to be a wheel balance issue.

  • I don't think it's a wheel hub issue because I also don't hear the growling/humming sound I heard when the old one went bad.

    • However, the vibration only arose after my work on the right wheel hub, so I wonder if I screwed something up??? (Seemed to simple to screw up).
  • CV joint also seems unlikely due to a lack of "clicking" on sharp turns.
