I have a 97 nissan altima and I'm having a problem with the passenger side front tire. It was shaking and making a kind of tapping/grinding sound you can feel on the passenger side floor with your feet. I replaced the control arm and tie rods, and got a new tire and got it balanced and the problem is still there. It seems to be only under acceleration or cruising, when I let go of the gas it stop. A mechaninc noticed my motor mount was non existent and I got that replaced and I'm pretty sure it stopped for a day or two but maybe I wasn't going fast enough or paying attention cuz I thought it was fixed. But anyway it still does it, is it possible he didn't do a good job with the mount or since its only when pressing the gas maybe its the drive shaft on that side? There's no clicking on turns or anything to indicate bad cv joints, just a shakey tire and the tapping noise on the passenger side floor. Could it be a bent drive shaft or something?
