Check your driveshaft universal joints. I had nasty vibration under load when my 4-wheel drive was engaged because one of the front universals was shot.

GONE, all I have left are a few spare parts and the wheels.

Body Damage is Cool
Check your tires too. You could have lost a wheel weight.

HI! ooo oooo.. i might be able to aid. Sounds unlikely to be balance as most balance issues begin to be felt at 45mph and up. not at 20. 20 is not enough speed to get a virbration. could be a separated tire. could be a worn U-join as they said. An experienced person in this can distinguish a U-joint vibration since the speed of the axle is 3-4 times that of the rotational speed of the wheels. Therefore your vibration is much faster if it's U-joint/axle related. If it changes intensity on accel/decel/coast, then it's more likely a U-joint as the changing loads on the axle can change the amount of runout (wobble) of the shaft. A loose U-joint will allow a shaft to be not centered like that. 1st, chk Ujoints.. If you find a dry brown powder on the ujoints it is probably from dry and worn out needle bearings in the ujoint. they rust enough and they just crumple and get grinded down to dust and finds it's way out the seals creating play.

I had a vibration just like that.
Was my front shaft front u-joint. It was starting to seize up and was not moving like they should. So, I removed the front shaft and checked out the play and they were in great shape, just seizing up. So I made a little jig out of a 2x6 and 3" wood screws to hold the u-joint in place while I moved the shaft all around. I was spraying lubricant in all the ends to get at the little needle bearings inside. I started off slow so not to break anything and after 30 min or so they were working good as new. Spraying now & then.
No play with any of the little needle bearings at all, just started to seize up.
So doing this may not be the best way or recommended, but it saved me at least $100.00...for now...lol
This happened back in December 2010. Working great still.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

NAPA Auto parts. Good prices better parts. Not sure the last time I looked at spring prices for a kia, but for a '97 Jeep TJ they're about $120/ea...
