The car can possibly be "tracking" from the tires or possibly an alignment and while your at it check the IDLER arm. They are known to fail.

I would start with the simple and easy things. I would check upper and lower ball joints ( can explain correct procedure if unknown) I would check the tie rods and lastly the sway bar bushings. Also i would check for equal and correct cold tire pressure. Let me know if you need anymore assitance I would be glad to help. Thank you for using fixya.com

When doing 65-70 mph on the highway, the steering column shakes.


Could be a bad motor mount, probably the front right. It is on the frame behind your passenger side front tire. Place a pry bar between the frame and engine block and try to lift the engine a little. You'll be able to easily see if it's bad. You can also check the upper engine mount, it's on the drivers side coming from the firewall to the top of the motor.

Seem like you need to have at-least the two front tires high speed balanced. This shaking at high speed is most likely due to the tire being out of balanced. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

High speed vibration


try checking your bearings on both sides. as for your brakes when you change your rotors try changing both of them as well as your pads. i had the same problems and that fixed it. if it persists i would look at your ball joints and then your calipers. good luck.
