50k and you're just getting started. You will have to either get a better paying gig or start robbing liquor stores for the preventative maintenance yet to come.

I would have still checked the gap on them. Can you describe in more detail the vibration you are experiencing? The rpm it occurs, if a/c is on, etc.?
