you're just throwing parts at it. why?

is the same mechanic doing all of the work? what does he say?

when were the front shocks last replaced?

the shocks have never been replaced but the car did sit in a weird angle in a sloping yard for 6 years it was technically abandoned, mechanic always says oh itís this part or that part but itís never fixed the problem.

part of their job (shocks) is isolating vibrations like what you're experiencing. in fact badly worn shocks can allow normal or acceptable wheel "imbalance" to be noticeable.

that's a red flag in my book. he may mean well, but he'll end up wasting your time and money (sounds like he has done already). find another mechanic who knows how to troubleshoot and diagnose. even the best out there get it wrong sometimes, but they'll be honest about it and explain their methods/logic.
