I'm chasing a similar vibration myself. I doubt it's the bearings. But they are easy to check. Pull the wheel, tapout the dust cap (large screw driver and hammmer) there is a pinch nut on the hub instead of a castleated nut you may be used to, loosen the allen bolt and unscrew the nut. the out bearing willl then come out. inspect, repack and reinstall nut. tighten nut just till there is no play on hub but also no load on bearing. fill cap half full with grease and reinstall. If your bearings are bad you'll have to remove the hub and drive out the races and replace. As I'm having the same problem, I've had some posts on this referenceing the tie rod ends. I've got to check them this weekend. Good luck
