I have a 2000 xj8. I was driving and went over a buckle in the road. two pieces of concrete had buckled up to form a sort of speed bump. I hit it at about 40 MPH. Now I have a rough vibration that starts in the steering wheel at about 30MPH and spreads through the front end. It will smooth out as I pass 50MPH, but it is still very noticeable. I had the wheels re-balanced, no help. When they had it up on the rack, there didn't seem to be any play in the wheels. The vibration is only when driving. When stationary and in neutral, revving the motor up to driving RPMs does not see the vibration. When driving at speed and putting the car in neutral and coasting, I do feel the vibration at 30MPH and up. Any help?

rebalanced tires and checked for play in the wheel while on the rack. No vibration when stationary and revving the motor. Vibration does not go away when at speed on the road and putting the car from drive to neutral and coasting.
Hello and welcome to justanswer.com
I think you should have the wheels and tores checked. They may have balanced out but you may have a shifted belt or slightly bent wheel. If you do not feel the vibration in the seat or floor then this is usually an indication of a front end/tire issue. We may have a problem with the steering rack or control arm even though there is no excessive play in any bushing or joint.

forgive my ignorance, but what are "tores"?
Sorry that was a typo. I meant tires.
