Ball joints, idler arm, pitman arm and tie rod ends are all problems with these vehicles. If any of these parts are worn it can cause your problem and it cannot be properly aligned until the parts are replaced..

How To Repair Ford Taurus

if the steering wheel is vibrating it may only be tire balancing ,, but whoever put on the tires should have done this ,,, if you jack up te car in front ( and do use axle stands ) catch the wheel top and bottom there should be very little play in it when you rock it ,,, try the same across the wheel ie quarter to 3 ''' if you find excessive play a bearing or steering linkage part is worn ,,,alignment wont cause vibration only uneven tire wear ,,,,,check the play asap because if a balljoint of steering part is badly worn this could become dangerous

When driving vehicle it sounds like wheels are truck tires but when you turn wheel slightly other direction noise goes away

Check the tread depth using a penny. The tread should be higher that the top of Lincoln's head when pressed against the tire.

Also check for uneven tread wear on the tire.

A 4 tire replacment and alignment may be in order.

Also check if it is a wheel bearing. Jack up the car and pull in the tire in and up and down direction. If it is loose with a clanking sound then the bearing needs to be replaced.

My 94 plymouth voyager sounds and acts like a wheel bearing humm. i've replaced front and rear wheel bearings and the humm is still there.

I'd certainly rotate tires to see if noise changes at all, as well as take a good look at tread on front tires, especially for excess or unusual wear on edges, especially outside of right front, if your quite sure the noise is coming from the right side. Does the noise increase, decrease, or stay same, on a left hand turn? Another thing would be to check all motor, and transmission mounts and see if it looks like things may have shifted slightly, or if they appear worn or broken, as well as If engine/transaxle has shifted slightly it can cause similar noises as well. As far as left front bearing goes, I wouldn't rule it out 100% either, unless you are positive noise is from right front area. You have to remember, either way you turn the wheel, will slightly shift either bearing if there is play in it. Rule out easy stuff first like tires.

Approximate cost of alignment for 2007 MB C230 and is it needed, just replaced tires and has 69K.

Front wheel alignment $60-80. Four wheel? double. As far as needing it, shops will always try to say you need it. I go by how the old tires were wearing. Did it pull left or right? Did the tires wear evenly? Did they wear on the inside track? Then definately! If on the outside that's more normal but only so much. If your car drives straight and you never hit curbs or cement stops or big holes then you may be OK.

2001 Jeep wrangler, at 45-50 mph, the front end and steering wheel shakes real bad.

I would start by first making sure you dont have a bent rim. Check the tires for any bubbles in the sidewall or any deformation in the tire as this would suggest a broken cord inside the tire. If that checks out, get the tires balanced and see if that solves the problem.

I have a vibrating in the front right. At most speeds. When I turn slightly to the left it does not do it.

The problem you describe is consistant with a tire problem. Could be as simple as rebalancing, however since it does not do it when you turn left, it makes this solution unlikely, but not out of the question. I would, based on your description of the problem tend to think that your tire may be slightly out of round from the center to the left side of the contact patch, or possibly a belt separating on the inside. When you turn left, your tire will tend to ride on the right edge, you loose the vibration, which would lead me to believe that your tire is "true" on the right side of the contact area.
