My Ride: e46 325ci
Vibration at 50mph

Hey guys, i rarely drive my e46 and have been messing with it here and there. I noticed some vibration a few weeks ago and ever since i changed out my fcabs to meyle's, ive have been chasing vibration issues for weeks. I recently found both of my front wheels were bent so i got new ones and balanced them 3 times and had 2 separate alignments in the last week. I have vibration from 50mph+ and it is less pronounced after some parts but still enough for me to feel nervous about driving it on the highway.

New parts:
Koni sport front and rear
Gc coilovers
Uuc front camber plates
Uuc rear camber arms
Rogue RSMs
Steering guibo
Swaybar links
Meyle FCABs
Brembo front and rear blank rotors
Akebono pads
Power steering pump

I ordered some new tie rods and control arms as well and will be installing those this week.

Any ideas of what it could be? I believe the wheel bearings, control arms and tie rods are the only parts i have not changed up front and the ca may be the culprit? The vibration is a fast shaking only noticeable from 50+mph. I have checked the calipers and both wheels spin freely. The car has 120k miles and most of the parts were original. From what ive read, most suspension components should be changed after 100k anyway.
