Default Car shaking. Please help!

So my 2006 wrx has been shaking upon reaching 75 mph on the highway. When I bought it, it had an sti spoiler on it. I brought my car to subaru and a mechanic and they couldn't find anything wrong with my car. Subarus multi point inspection determined everything is fine including a recalled control arm. My mechanic thought it was the drive shaft, but after testing it on a dyno, it didn't shake at all.

My mechanic thinks it might be the spoiler because it bounces on the highway due to high winds the past couple of months. I tightened all the bolts, including one that wasn't attached but my car is still shaking. It only happens between 75 and 90 mph. Does anyone have any advice?

Is it the steering wheel, seat, pedals, or other place that you feel shaking? Wheel balance is the usual culprit.

My buddy and I just removed the trunk completely and took it for a ride on the highway. It is still shaking so it isnt the spoiler. The shaking is coming from the front end near my feet and the passengers feet and it shakes more when turning on the highway. The motor mounts were just checked by subaru and it has been balanced by two separate mechanics. Could it be the wheel bearings?

It sounds like one or both of the front wheel bearings. Is it making any noise? Also, check the power steering.
