2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7 - Vibration issues

I had a slight humming in front end, and vibration when applying brakes and CV shaft clacking. I have put NEW CV Shafts L/R, new rotors and brakes L/R, and new Hub Assemblies L/R , and now the vibration is worse than ever!!
The CV shaft clacking is gone, the brake vibration is gone, but now the humming is worse 35-40 mph on acceleration, and let off gas goes away, and smooths out about 65-70 mph,, thinking front drive shaft but it was not this bad before the new CV shafts and Hub assemblies, did I miss something on installation of CV shafts, almost sounds like a bearing hum???????

    Could be a bearing, but have you considered an out of balance or bad tire? Just trying to think of possibilities. But the hum on acceleration going away when you let off the gas makes me think of things like a drive shaft too
