I have a shake thats not bad in the steering wheel but you can see the passenger seat shaking as well as anything in cup holder.Had rotate and balance no dice.Had one tire seperate per say tire place and one blow out same position.I have began to believe it is the wheel bearings because i can hear a knocking noise on that side .Dealer want me to leave car for a day but not giving price so thats a no go.What do you all think? This is driving me crazy.Thanks in advance for all replys.

    Jack it up and grab the wheel (tire) at 12:00 & 6:00. If there is any play, the bearing is bad.

    Got the wheels balanced but still have the shaking.Do you think it could be a broken transmission or engine mount? Also still hear a knocking or bumping sound.
