97 Intrepid, 3.5L, 220,000 miles, nasty vibration from passenger side front wheel under heavy acceleration between 50 and 60 MPH. Replaced what remained of cradle bushings. Dooo-Waah and off we go again! Wow, what a difference.

The first thing I would do is actually have tire spin balance checked. If that checks good, then it is possibly a hub bearing.

Driving between 35-50 mile ph truck will start vibrating

There are many stages of vibration. The most common is in the steering and USUALLY a steering dampner will correct this. However, your description is not real defined and until the technician actually experiences it, it cannot be properly diagnosed

Front-end vibration in my lincoln ls v8. you can only hear it when you go over 45 mph

I strongly suggest you check the lug nuts for tightness and if they are ok on your right front tire then go to a tire service center and have them balance and check the belts-either is very dangerous because it will A-fafall off or B-blow at high speed. Good luck!

When I pass 25 - 30 mph my car suddenly sounds like an airplane. It makes no sound when at a stop, only when in motion going past 30. at times it feels like it may be vibrating.

Hi, sounds like a bad wheel bearing, possible tire noise, if you can identify or narrow down which end of the car (front or rear) its coming from you can rotate your tires(front to back) and test drive and see if the sound moves to opposite end now. If not you can use a stethoscope or long screw drivers and spin each wheel by hand (vehicle not running!) and listen for a humming grinding sound while tires are off ground via a lift or jack.

Front end vibration at 40 mph and rubbing sound

Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.

I have a 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo. I get vibration in the front suspension while driving at 60 MPH or hit a bump in the road. I need to slow down to stop the vibration of shaking. Has anyone had this...

you are getting an oscillation .you need to put the front tires on the back and try it again as it could be bad tires.
if it is still the same,put the vehicle on a hoist and check the tire/rim play side to side and up and down.
turn the wheel and check for bearing noise.
common things are wheel balancing,tires,tie rod ends,worn axles and bearings.

1997 olds cutlass frontend shimmy

Wow, what a can of worms, but here we go.
First, be where there is an air source so you can inflate your tires. Now, jack up the car. You can do one wheel at a time if you want. Now, let the air out. All of it. Now, very slowly, turn (spin) wheel and look for a flat spot in the tire. This is an indication that the belt in the tire has broken.
Another thing is to check for bad shocks. This can cause excessive bouncing but you feel it shaking or vibrating.
Check tire for uneven wear. Poor alignment can also causing vibrations in the steering wheel.
Next, be sure that no one has used the "Fix a Flat" stuff in a can. It is used to temp fix for a flat but it fills the tire with a liquid sealant and can give you a "Fit" trying to figure this one out.
You may need to have the entire front end check for loose (worn) parts. Tie rod ends, ball joints,etc.
Good Luck
