Limars........I am having the same problem with my 2014 Limited
What is a front coupling? What does it say on the service paperwork?
My hubs were replaced at around 30,000 and the vibration got better for a while and I just out on a new set of Michelin MXM4’s, but the vibration is back with a vengeance. Car has 114.000 on the odometer and I drive it daily for a sales job. Vibration drives me absolutely crazy at times
Thanks!

Could be a bad harmonic balancer.

I believe that LMiars meant loose cowling. In the post prior to his last, he mentions the cowling came loose and was dragging. If you think about it, if that lower spoiler/cowling is 'flapping in the wind', that would cause a vibration thru the car. Maybe it is too much movement from that piece being transmitted thru the car?!

I had a vibration on my 2012 that drove me crazy. Changed rotors, pads all kinds of stuff. Eventually found out it was the tires even though they were fairly new. Struts were bad causing them to go out of round a bit. Sounds like you guys have tried a lot of stuff. I haven't heard any mention of checking struts and motor mounts. Also one of the Taurus axles has a support bearing because it is longer and it could be that. The BIGGEST THING i found that makes the most difference is having the tires Road Force balanced. You have to find a shop that has that machine and knows how to use it. It matches the high and low spots of the rims and tires and trust me nothing works like that. It's a little expensive but again I had fairly new tires and ruled them out because they were fairly new causing me to waste money on everything else. Also I had a lot of tires through the years and the name brands are not what they were. Continental extreme contact DWS are hands down the best tires I ever owned ! You cant make them Hydroplane I tried lol. They're good in the snow also. Yes they're expensive but well worth it. When the tires I have on my 2018 Taurus go that's whats going on this car. I had them road force balanced and no lie ran the car on a trip at a steady 120 mph for a few hours straight. I know that's silly but it was so smooth I couldn't resist and it was a long trip. Hope some of these ideas help !
