It depends how bad its vibrating yes it does req rebalancing the longer you leave this more components will wear to like track rod ends,uneven tyre wear caused by tracking issues if money is tight at the moment you could try swapping front wheels with rear if you have two trolley jacks & tyres have decent tread hope that sheds some light onto situation.

    My 2003 Santa Fe was vibrating at around 65 to 70 mph also. I had a few good mechanics check it and they both said it was the center drive shaft support and bearing. I called the dealership and they told me it was $1,300 just for the part!! Then they want $98 per hour for labor!! My car only has 90,000 miles on it and they told be it was not covered under the 10 year 100,000 mile power train warranty. Nice huh?? Because this is a major safety issue, it should be a re-call!! I will NEVER buy a Hyundai again!!

When I drive at high speed there is a funny sound from steering sound like garrrrr and the steering vibrate


When I drive at high speeds I hear a funny siren sound with blue lights flashing :) Seriously though, the power steering fluid may be aerated or low and moaning which can make the steering wheel feel odd, as in vibrating . See what your fluid looks like and the level of it.

I have a 2008 Infinity QX-56 and it shakes terribly when I apply the brakes when driving at highway speeds. It also feels like the suspension is bad when you go over a bump or hit a pot-hole.


Warped brake rotor usually cause high vibration at high speeds. But you can also feel it at lower speeds. But bad ball joints and tie rod end will cause vibration at high speeds. Ball joints will pop at pot holes, sometimes. Tie rods can be felt in the steering wheel at a stop. Move the wheel slightly to the left and right, you can feel/hear a tap as you turn it.

Vibration goes away when steering wheel slightly turned


That turning of the steering wheel puts lateral pressure on CV joints. IT can also put a load on the axel bearing. If the vibration stops then you have an idea where to look. IF it does not stop then it is most likely tires.
