Just bought a 2002 Buick Lesaber 30K miles. Had rear tires replaced
due to cupping. Have replaced tires and wheels from car that did not
vibrate. Vibration at 75mph is still there. Machanic tells me he
doesn't know what he can due to solve the problem. Since the steering
wheel does not vibrate does that mean the problem is in the rear of the
car? Could it be an alignment problem? Give me some suggestions that
I can propose to my machanic to check. Would wheel bearings cause this
problem? thanks tom
Wheel bearings is possible. See if you can find someone with the abitly
to high speed spin balance the wheel/tire assembly on the car to see if
you can reproduce the vibration and track its source.
Actually your dealer must make this available by law to the general public
if you have a vehicle that may be affected, he can charge you a small
copying fee. Alldata provides a complete online manual with all the tsb
data, 24.95 per vehicle.

Cupping sounds like bad (like completely gone) shocks to me. Bad shocks
certainly can cause a vibration at certain speeds.
I would agree with other post about finding someone with a balancing
machine that can do them ON the car. Either this or a shop with a dyno.
This effectively mimics being on the road and they might be able to see
