This can be caused by a tire that's out of balance or (more seriously)
an alignment problem. You shouldn't drive this car too much before you
find out what's wrong.

Tires would be first bet it could be a broken belt undetectable by a pro
with the wheel off. If more than 30000m on the front just replace it if
balancing wont cure it. My Michelin with 30000 was like this, junk with
a broken belt. You can rotate rear to front to rule it out. Other than
that it gets expensive.

I had my struts changed. two days ago. Should the mechanic have
balanced the tires?

Balance them, but a broken belt often cant be detected by a pro, so you
rotate them to find out, a bad shake is usualy a belt, a little shake is
maybe a balance. This is all extra.

I had the tires balanced, and its improved. But, not perfect.
The mechanic that balanced my tires said it look like the inner rod
looks like
its bent a little could that be the cause of the vibrations?
