Could it be transmission?

Iíve recently replaced hub bearings on my 2012 JKUS (110,000 miles). After that Iíve started to notice strange vibration I can feel when stopping slowly. Basically when Iím slowing down before traffic lights, my steering wheel slightly vibrates like driving on those safety strips on the side of the highway. Could this be transmission related or maybe the issue is front differential? When I shift to neutral while slowing down, the vibration is still there. Maybe my new hub bearings are defective? Iíve also replaced the u-joints about year or so ago, so I donít think that u-joints could be at fault here. Any ideas?

Are you running MT tires? Check to see if you have feathering of the tread blocks. I had a set that got feathered to the point that driving at slow speed felt like riding on cobblestones, but it wasnít nearly as noticeable at higher speeds.

I've also had feathered aggressive tires that caused this symptom. Tires would be the first thing I'd check.
