It seems like something is not right with the front supension on my X. It vibrates hard when going over bumps and the hrd vibration is even velt/seen in the steering wheel. Naturally, I thoght is was the shocks so I replaced them....didnt really help. Is there another common "wearable" part up front that would cause this? Like bushings or .....? BTW mine is 2 WD

Thanks,

Look into the bushings, wheel bearings, and tie rod ends. Jack front off ground and give wheels a good shake. This works better if you have someone else looking at everything underneath while you're shaking.
 






I'd check the bushings also, the dealrtship replaced my and that fixed the problem you described.
