If it were an issue with the ball joint you would also notice the vibration when turning on bends, especially the tight ones.

You may also want to check wheel balance if it is OK

The struts and shocks where not tightened properly take it back and have then tighten everything down to correct specs. But before you leave your hosue check your tire lug nuts and make sure they are tight so you can drive over there and like i said have them tighten everything

High speed vibration


try checking your bearings on both sides. as for your brakes when you change your rotors try changing both of them as well as your pads. i had the same problems and that fixed it. if it persists i would look at your ball joints and then your calipers. good luck.
