Do you have any vibrations in the steering wheel when you are applying the brakes? As if the rotors are uneven or warped?

I had the exact problem you describe and the problem turned out to be in the front rotors. I had some pulsing when braking but I never thought that a rotor problem would cause vibration when the brakes were not being used. It was not until I turned the rotors that the vibration while driving went away. I cant explain why or how the warped rotors is causes the chassis vibration, but it was.

If you dont have any brake pulsing, then I am clueless.

Let me know what you find if you ever get it cured.
