Question about 2008 Saturn VUE
What about your power steering pump? Engine running, if you turn the wheels all the way right or left, check the fluid in power steering reservoir, is it churning? Do you ever check the power steering fluid?
If there is no circulation, maybe one of the power steering lines is blocked? There could be other issues.

Vues are bad for having all hub bearings make noise,check your rear ones.Or the ones you didn't have replaced.If it's all wheel drive check the propshaft center carrier bearing.Common to fail & make noise.hope this helps

about $200 in parts,,,you can not do this at home,,,,,you need special tools to press yoke on and off and even then sometimes they bend,,,not a easy job,,,,,,i am a master tech and worked at saturn for 8 years and i hated doing these

I would start by having the tires carefully inspected and balanced if needed. A tire that has a broken internal steel cord can develop a lump or wave in the tread face which will cause the steering wheel to shake as the vehicle speed increases. Usually a tire that is developing such a problem is very close to failing completely [flat or blow-out] so have them checked as soon as possible. An out of balance tire usually just causes a general vibration or shake but can cause bigger problems depending on how out of balance they might be. Worn tie rod ends or other suspension components can cause a similar shake so have those items checked at the same time. Worn struts usually won't cause the shake you are describing but can cause the car to handle quite poorly and bounce excessively on bumpy roads. Wheel bearings often [but not always] make a grumbling/growling kind of noise as they start to go bad but usually won't cause a shake. A good inspection should quickly pinpoint the cause of the problem
