1999 Chrysler Cirrus Wheel Squeak and Vibrations

Tires and Wheels problem
1999 Chrysler Cirrus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 130K miles

Okay, my 98' Chrysler Cirrus has a squeaky/grindy noise coming from the right front wheel. PLUS I am getting a vibration from the front end (it seems) too. Some roads seem worse then others which makes me wonder if the vibration is something as simple as having worn tires. I notice the vibration at 45mph and up. I have had the rotors replaced, the brakes checked, the front left tie rod replaced, a front end alignment, AND I have had my tires rotated and balanced. So I have checked all the problems I assumed it was. However when I take it in for the squeaky/grindy wheel noise no one seems to find an issue. Nor can they explain the vibration. I get "well it could be because you have a lot of mileage on the car" but I am not sure. I just wish I could find out what is wrong with my car. Please help
Do you

I need to understand your point real quick. You said "has a squeaky/grindy noise coming from the right front wheel. The front left tie rod replaced.)

If the vibration comes from the right (passenger) side, why do you replace the left tie rod, instead of the right side?

I believe your problem lies with suspension, and not the brake system. Check your sway bar link and bushings. While you are at it, have the inner and outer tie rod ends checked, along with both upper and lower ball joints and all the bushings. I had similar problem a while back, it turned out to be the engine mount on the passenger side.
