Are you sure everything is tightened up after the bushes were
replaced? Wehn you say "adjusting steering box", do you mean
increasing the pre-load. The first time I did this, I didn't get it
tight enough - a small allen key is no good, you need to do it with a
5mm hex drive on a socket.

Does it start purely on speed, or does it only start when you brake?
It sounds like you've covered the obvious. I notice one poster
suggested looking at the propshaft, which would be my next bet. I'd
also check the diff is running smoothly - wear on the front diff was a
contributory factor to the vibrations I was getting.
