If it is at one speed, I usually find it to be front end alignment....go check that and balance your tires is my suggestion. When was the last time you did them? Have you hit a pot hole lately?? Hope this helps

Seems under further investigation you are not alone. I found two reasons you have this vibration. If it is not the tires or alignment.....then try check out the front end wheel bearing hubs. At first glance mine looked typical for a car with 64k mileage on it. Upon closer inspection it was obvious the entire wheel bearing assembly and mount assembly was completely destroyed by corrosion. The bearing hub on the right wheel took 5 1/2 hours to pound off and it took another 2 1/2 hrs to remove the left bearing hub. Cost for AC Delco OEM parts; $440.00 dollars. Labor; $600.00 dollars. Approx. 50 miles have been put on the car since the change out of the wheel bearing hubs and I can feel no low frequency vibration in the steering wheel and there is zero whining noise in the 50mph-70mph range.

The last thing I would check is the drive shaft. From a friend of mine. The service manager and tech told him he was positive that the rear drive shaft needs to be sent in and rebalanced for $150. I have never heard of a drive shaft becoming out of balance before? I do know that the drive shaft was very rusty on the outside, so I suppose it could have thrown a balancing weight.

Check the front hubs. There was a bulletin on them.
