Question xc70 cv joint replacement

Hello , a couple months ago I needed to fix the drivers side cv joint ,after that I had a problem with the passenger side , the boot was torn and draining fluid , the car still drove but was vibrating at around 100kms at this point . So ... I repaired the passenger side hoping all would be fine after install . Now , I have a vibration at say, a mid point of acceleration around. 50kms/hr . The car rides like it should at 100 km/hr now .but of course I'm not always on the highway ,so it still bugs me . Does anyone know about this problem or experienced similar with their car ?

My guess, at that speed, is a tire that is a bit out of round. Tires are flexible, so they're always out of round, but sometimes it gets a little excessive and irritating. A non-round tire can be balanced, but it doesn't solve the problem.

Could be other things. CV joints don't really cause vibration much, so getting a bad new one would be pretty low on my list. YMMV.
