The parts you mentioned won't cause a vibration but after changing tie rod ends the car has to be aligned. If it wasn't that would explain the crooked steering wheel.
If you want to know exactly what is wrong you're going to have to have the car inspected at a tire and alignment shop. You know we can't tell that over a computer. Any professional would inspect the car and make a list of the loose or worn parts he finds. I'm not sure what you mean by "without going through a train of things trying to figure out what it is", but I'm guessing, (hoping) you mean you don't want to throw random parts at it in hopes one will solve it. That, again, is why we diagnose the cause before we replace stuff.
You also have to determine where you observe the vibration. Is it in the steering wheel, brake pedal, seat, etc? The most common cause of a vibration in the steering wheel or entire car is tire imbalance, a broken tire belt, a bent wheel, or debris stuck between the wheel and rotor or rotor and hub. A vibration in the steering wheel that started right after a wheel bearing assembly was replaced is due to failure to clean the three rust spots off the back of the rotor mounting surface. Those will make the rotor and wheel wobble, but you should see a slight steering wheel shimmy at very low speeds like when driving through a parking lot.
The same is true of a broken tire belt. That could be worst at 50 mph but it typically would still be there at other speeds. A tire out-of-balance is the most likely suspect when no vibration is felt at any other speeds.
