I still say it's your tires. Think about how before you replaced your bushings, those tires were moving around a lot more and wearing in a bad way. Now your bushings are fresh and stiff and it's amplifying the bad wear on your tires. They could be cupped or have flat spots, ect. I had the same issue after doing my FCABs, and after putting on new tires it went away completely. It was most noticeable when the tires were still cold in the mornings. As the tires have worn down over time now, they've lost some of that smoothness, but since they've worn in evenly, I no longer have that vibration.

So, get your tires checked and at least re-balanced if you want. Then just live with it until they wear in or it's time for new tires.
