That is great insight and so true. I came across something as I was researching this and found that the STS is susceptible to a vibration the originates form the rear control arms. Looks like everything up front was replaced lol....Sorry gsmolnar93.. can't imagine how our industry gets a bad rep. .anyways...
I also agree that new does not mean good. Not sure in your neck of the woods, but too many alternater and starter rebuilds can be unbelievable.
I Came across a technical service bullitin that pertains to vibration. The manufacturer puts these out to help determine a problem or identify a common scenario etc..
Did the dealer fill one out?
IF they did I would like to know the results.
(They probably didn't and frankly they aren't paid to diagnose. That is, they are not given the time needed to diagnose and reluctantly may suggest a replacement on little information.)
IF not, like Mark says, We need to start at the beginning. There are way too many parts that were replaced on this without better testing. My guess this wasn't used and I can't say I would have right away.
What I suggest is to first ask about the sheet, if not, ask if they used "Chassis ears" to diagnosis this.
IF not, we should to do this.
Were both front axles replaed?
Just my $.02.
