Default Steering column and wheel vibration

01 9 5 Aero 2.3 135.000 miles.
I know the previous owner installed a motor mount, transmission mount, torque rod, transmission mount, belt and all pulleys, and a vibration damper. At this time the steering column and wheel has a distinct and rapid vibration at idle in gear and not in neutral. I do not feel the vibration on the shift lever or anywhere else on the car. I believe this be motor mount related. can anyone tell me which mount is the culprit?
I understand if the engine under load with the foot on the brake the motor will lift up if the mount under the battery is bad and if the engine sags the upper right is bad. This according to a prior post
