2009 E92 175,000 miles

Vibration at highway speed. Felt in floor and steering wheel. Recently replaced pass side thrust arm due to bad bushing.

Also hear increased "tire noise" sound like mud tires on truck. Alignment seems OK as car stays straight with no pulling.

Have had car in air and everything seems tight. No apparent worn bushings.

New "tire noise" appeared upon replacement of thrust arm. Vibration was present before but did not change significantly. This replacement REDUCED but did not eliminate vibration upon braking.

Where would you go from here? Alignment shop? Wheel bearing? I don’t want to just keep replacing parts without a good idea about what is wrong.

Thanks for any ideas

Additional info: vibration most noticeable at 50-70 mph goes away almost completely at 80. Shocks pass "bounce test"
