02 kia optima auto 6 cyl. mom to the best of my knowlege hit curb about 25 mph now the faster you go the louder and more pronounced the vibrating is. I was going to replace the pasenger side axle where the noise is coming from.
I have since replaced the axle and that made a huge difference. also rotated the wheels and tires and switched out two of the tires that were on it. the sound is still there about 35% of it, the sound is kinda like decelerating noise and kinda like I need to shift but I am in high gear at less than two thousand rpm. I am totally stumped please help!

Had the same problem on a used Kia we just bought. I suggest you put the spare on the damaged wheel position and see if the vibration goes away. I did that and the problem went away.
Then I knew our wheel was damaged so I took it to a place that repairs wheels and $100 later the problem was solved.
