I think the words 'checked' and 'looked at' are being used incorrectly in this instance.



A visual inspection is right at 0% effective in diagnosing, troubleshootin g, assessing, and repairing this condition.

Drive shaft has not been rebalanced. I hope to get it in for a better inspection of the front end in another week or so.

What you really need to do is to look at the car yourself following some of the help that has been provided here, OR, find a car guy that will help you do the looking.  Beyond what I recall being posted, it could also be a wobbling damper, loose torque converter, or even a loose flex plate.  A bad tire, or a driveshaft problem is probably the most prevalent source of vibration, but, not the only one.

Most shops are pretty clueless on these cars so I can only see your future ownership experience being bad with a turbo Regal if you are not willing to learn for yourself.

These cars can drive you crazy even tho they are relatively simple compared to newer stuff.  It gets very expensive to allow shops with a lack of experience try to sort these cars out.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.
