Hi.I recently fitted, new tyres, springs, shocks, tie rod ends, ball joints, inner and outer C V joints and controll arms, including 2 back wheel bearings. Checked the engine mountings, seems fine. I'm getting a very unstable ride, can feel almost every bump on the ride, car shakes alot, at a speed of 20 to 40 car shakes and then after 80 and upwards. I balanced the tyres and did alignment, still the same.I feel that I spend so much of money only to find out that the problem still exits. Please tell me whats going on. Thanks.

Raise car, put on stands. Grasp tire and push/pull both horizontally and vertically, if any movement then possible wheel bearing, ball joint, tie rod, control arm bushing.

The other possibility is the alignment is out of spec. Did you get a 4 wheel alignment?

Are the tires directional?

With all the work you did, camber and toe would most likely be way off.
