Customer Question

I have a 2015 crosstrek. Its a manual transmission. It was hit while parked in the front fender and pushed against curb. Whole front suspension replaces, all tires amd rear transmission mount (trans mount shows where it was hit against itself). I have been going back and forth with the body shop for the issue below: 4th and 5th gear has intermittten harmonic type vibration noises both coasting and underload 2k -3k rpms. They said the wheel bearings look ok, replaced 4th tire to match other new tires. Noise hasnt gone away. Any ideas cc joint, input/output shaft bearing, i am trying to give the mechanic an idea but eveytime they looked at it, they dont see anything. Ive taken it back to them several times and replace a part give it back and the noise is the same
