Question 96' Sable transaxle vibration?

Hi guys....
I am new to i hope you can help me with this problem.....
My ex-wife's car 1996 Mercury Sable (3.0-liter Duratec model) with
automatic transaxles AX4N. This car came to me with vibration from
frontend. She had a dealer look at it. They said it was wheel bearings
and tie-rod are bad... So this is what I replaced on her car.....

Lower balljoints (both sides)
hub and bearing assembly (both sides)
tie-rod end (drivers side)
stabillzer bar links (both sides)
Half shaft on pass side (passenager side)
(nut was rounded off..had to cut off)

But we still have vibration down by transaxle passenager side. I
looked at the car again and I can see the inter cv joint on
passenager side moving up and down when I turn the shaft by hand..
Could the bearing in tranny gone bad from the bad outer bearing??????
I have checked to make sure the inter cv was fully seated in
transaxle and I can feel the c clip seat....

I sure could use any email is

try changing tires and see if the vibration changes sides. do your brakes flutter at all when you press them? check motor mounts, etc.

if that tranny bearing was bad your output shaft seal would be leaking like a seive.

We had the same problem on our '91 Honda Accord. It is most likely the motor mount because when we replaced ours the vibration stopped for good. That is until a drunk driver totalled it.
