The Dark horse is the wheel hub assembly. Good news is there cheapish. My old Ram work truck had a similar issue. I replaced the upper control arm, lower ball joint, tie rods inner and outer, rotors because I needed them, still the vibration persisted. Did the hubs it finally went away. They sounded fine when turned and had no catches or wobble to them that I could tell. They were none the less the problem. Happy hunting your issue. Good luck

I am headed down the ball joint road. Already did the bearings. Is this a DIY with medium wrench skills? Or $600 best left to the dealer?

DIY is fine. Nice to have a big ratchet or breaker bar. You will also need a ball joint separator and ball joint press kit. It's just a question of what your time is worth to you. It will probably cost you a day labor plus parts and getting parts and tools together If $600 includes the alignment. That's not a bad price.

The thrill of doing it myself outweighs any time lost. I will get a better quote and decide from there.

I see Mas Moog Mevotech and Mopar on Rock Auto as premium choices. Any experience with which may be better than others?

A bad or cupped tire will shake and still balance out ok. I would rotate tires both front to back see if its better or worse then switch one at time. I did this to find out which one of mine were bad when I had this. The wide tires will cup easier if you dont keep the psi just right.

One side done. Someone said it on another post but the AutoZone ball joint press rental is crap, but with some luck, I got it. Lucky for me I saved a bearing race from my Jeep that was the perfect spacer for pressing in the new one. Their clamp was 1/4 inch short to accept spacers on top and bottom.
Edit. Both done. Second one was quick without having to reinvent my solution.
