Don't think I've heard of end links causing vibration, but fix it anyway. If you take the pull out of the equation, it might help isolate the vibration.

72K as in 72000 kms? or are you talking miles? If you found grease/oil in a rim, I still might suspect a shock. Oil leaks out till there's no more and you're left riding on a spring with no dampening. Voila- intermittent vibrations.

I was talking about miles and most of the grease is built up around the a-arm

Default Vibration and pull

A-arm= lower control arm at the bottom of the shock? Shock/strut recommended lifespan is about 70,000 miles. Is the car bouncy over bumps?

Shoot, I took a road trip in a car that didn't have any symptoms until I hit the highway. Washed some mud out of my wheels and it just kept vibrating down the highway. 60-75 was horrible, then got a bit better at 80. Took it to a shop and they immediately said it was the struts. $xxx$ later and it was smooth as glass.

^^ you ever play with top? notice they don't need a damping device to allow them to spin harmless vibration free?? Round tires are like that too. A good damping device simply hides the vibration.

^v^v^v^v body bouncing up and down, yes - the damping is shot and you need new dampers - shocks/struts etc. Vibration at speed is balance and or out of round by something. Rust under a wheel can make vibrations even though the tire and wheel are perfectly concentric, round, and balanced. Just sayin.. .. ..

Picture please?? Make sure we're talking about the same thing.

It won't likely cause a pull either. It will make for some strange handling in the corners as far as body roll is concerned.
