When I go onto the highway with my 98 Tiburon, going around 60-70 mph, my front end shakes. The steering wheel shakes to were my arm is going crazy. When I am making slight turns the shimming will sometimes stop.
Also when I pull into first gear my car dips down toward the left front wheel, only sometimes not all the time. This also happens when I brake, I dip down to the left front wheel, also again not all the time. My stearing will also shoots over to the left when those problems happen.
Its getting to the point where I am not sure if I should get it checked, I dont want to pay for a check up on a old car if I dont have to. If you guys know anything on my problem please let me know!

Re: 1998 tiburon front end shaking
If your tires are ballanced then you need tie rod ends or ball joints jack up one wheel and **** tire left and right and see where the play is coming from even if you can replace the worn parts you will still have to get a front end allignment

if the shaking starts at around 30 mph have a wheel alignment done as it indicates a castor wobble problem
have the front end and suspension checked for worn steering joints , ball joints and wheel bearings
a good thing to check would be your inner and outer tie rod ends. if they are going bad they will cause a lot of shaking in the car and will also cause the front end to be out of a lined which will make your tires wear faster and uneven
Start by checking the tie rod ends on both sides on the front wheels..With the truck jacked up and jack stands underneath the frame both left and right wheels should be suspended in mid air..The are two tie rod ends on each side of the vehicle, a inside and outside tie rod..Check for any excessive place on each one... Also ckeck the balance on all four tire's... Inspect the wheels for any stress cracks that would cause them to not to balance correctly and make your vehicle shake... Check the transmission mounts on the cross member,make sure the mount is secure to the Trans and cross member mount..Also check both u-joints on the drive shaft and any hanger bearings that may be underneath there..If it's a 4 wheel drive check both drive shaft's...Anyone of these option's could show those symtom's you mentioned...Good luck and let me know how it works out..
try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
