Check alignment, tie rod ends, possibly a loose wheel? are the factory retaining clips still on the rotors? that's all I can come up with off the top of my head.

it could be a lost wheel weight too, it will cause the same situation but not near what you're talking about. usually a drive shaft doesn't go bad unless you break it lol. No bearings just u-joints. For peace of mind you could check it but if it were that you would feel it well before 80mph

No everything is stock except the wheels but the problem was there before I changed them, continued after I changed them.

Mechanic said the same thing but i haven't really checked it out, let me know if it is that the problem.I've also had this squeak when I hit bumps or on take off. It's from a part that's on the driver side right between the back wheel and driver door. Not sure what its called but I've used wd40 on it and it stopped the squeaking and reduced the vibration.

The squeak is probably the lca's. Very common. I just bought Ford Racing replacements from AM to solve that problem. I did the WD40 thing for a while. It eventually stops working.

No I have an automatic there's just this vibration that I feel through the front of the car and on the steering wheel when I go 60-80 mph. Once I go past 80mph the vibration stops

With it going away past 80 leads me to believe it's an alignment issue.

Same here it sounds alot like a wheel is not balance right.... Also are your tires facing the right direction... Take it to a reputable tire shop and have them balance your tires. They will also check that your tires are put on the right direction. And If possible get an alignment too.

Tires seem to be facing the right way but ill take it to get them balanced and get an alignment as well. I just bought the wheels the guy from Craigslist that sold them to me said they were balanced but the vibration was there when I had the stock wheels and I had them balanced.
