Angry Please Help Me Get Some Resolultion

Firstly, forgive me. Maybe this should be posted in issues/service..

When I purchased my SRT it was slightly used. 22000km.
It had a steering wheel viberation (among many other issues)
and the "service adaptive dampening suspension" warning.

They replaced the spring to remedy the adaptive issue, and replaced my sway bar links to get rid of a from end clunk.

Even with all of this, plus getting my wheels balanced by them and an alignment done by a different shop the front end viberation is still there. They now just recently did an alignment for free, when I didnt ask them to and made it way worse. My steering wheel is way of center, and viberates more than before.
Not to mention, they told me at 28000 km my brakes front brakes need replacement along with the rotors.

They are saying that there is no issues with the brakes, and that the viberation could be cause by bad rotors because "your brakes will always be touching".... I asked them to look at the front wheel bearings but wont until my brakes are done.

It has been in the shop 8 times, ive owned it 7 months.... Other than ordering the parts and replacing my brakes, I dont know what to do.

Its currently booked in again, to get them to correct the alignment and put my summer tires on.
Im loosing hope and need advice. ITs not even a joy to drive any more.

What could the issue be?, is this common?? How come when they do an alignment it only makes it worse??

Just a thought but you may have a bent or damaged rim or a tyre flat spot. I would take it to a reputable tyre centre get them to swap the front to the rear and do another balance and alignment. That should give you your answer if it's the wheels. If it's still vibrating then it's something else and it won't be your brakes.
