You may have to get your wheels re ballanced if you lost one of the weight's on the rim. The other thing to is a bent rim if you hit a large pot hole or crub and last to see if the tire it self has funny wear patterns on the treads.
Other things to look for if your wheels are ok. Check the ball joints Check the tie rod ends Check and pay attention to the Idler and Pitman arm. Your looking for any excessive movments
A good way is to grease all that is mentioned above and see if the vibration is gone.
Lost thing would be the brake rotors but you'ld now that by having vibrations throught out any speed when you apply the brakes to slow down.
Good luck and hope this helps, you should be able to do this on your own other then checking the wheel ballance.

BUSHINGS! Your bushings need to be replaced. It is probably worse if you are in a turn at 65mph, too.

This particular van is being noted as having balljoint problems at around 100,000 miles. That would be the first place I'd have checked.

Vibrates terribly over 65 mph


sounds like you have a wheel alignment problem. Not enough castor set. Have the front end checked out for loose worn bits. If you have a steering shocky in the system it is probably shot and not doing the job of stabilising the steering. Remember if the springs are a bit flat IE the front end is a bit low then the whole steering geometery alters and negative castor results as what you have described

Vibration at 70 MPH.


Warped or out-of balance brake rotor? Also keep in mind that loose rear differential trailing arms that allow the rear differential to squirm around can also cause steering wheel shake.

Chevy astro vibrates at 65mph wats wrong


I agree with chryslerpro. It usually is a tire problem. If it turns out otherwise, another item to check is a bent or out of balance driveshaft. They tend to bend after an impact or repetative towing of something heavy.
