Question about Cars & Trucks
You have an inner CV joint causing the vibration. Probably the right side. Replace the whole axle. Remans are cheap and offer a lifetime warranty. To be safe, have someone check the motor mounts. When one is bad, a second is usually bad as well. When a motor mount is bad, the angle of the CV axle changes. Most common on the side if rhe short axle.
Forget the tire and brake exam for this problem. Death wobble is only solid axle trucks, not Chev pass vehicles.

Sounds like maybe a busted motor mount or transmission mount, or a worn out cv drive axle.Look under the front of the car at the drive axles there is 4 rubber boots 2 on each axle inner boot and outer boot.See if one or more of the boots is torn or split.

You might to have a tire shop check the wheel for roundness, not balance. A tire can be balanced and be out of round, causing the shaking you describe. On front wheel drive cars, the wheel/hub assembly may be bad, which a good tire shop can tell you if it is. Can't say if it will be expensive, the hub is relatively inexpensive. Labor will probably be the deal-breaker.

SOURCE: front end vibration
sounds like you got the D.W (death wobble)
It is usually caused by either a bad tire,an off balanced, worn bushings, bad tracbar or loose steering components.

Has to be a drive axle,most likely an inner joint,should be able to feel the play if one is bad (jacked up to let the wheel spin freely).
Also. If the front suspension is weak,or lowered, the CV axle will bottom out in the inner plunge cup and make a terrible vibration.
