Vibrations are tough to diagnose even when I have them in the shop...but as you discribe it sounds like a worn inner C/V axle joint. Almost no way to verify except by exsperiance and a feeling for it after years of doing this. Sometimes when I drive a car and feel it I sometimes can get a clue to which side is causing it. A good service professional can be helpful in times like this so unnessary parts are not replaced.
