Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic
A likely cause is the front tires are out of round or out of balance or both.
Tires are the most common cause of excessive vibration at highway speed assuming the hubs are good and the bearings are tight, and the front end parts are all tight and in good condition.
I just replaced 4 tires on my 1997 Cadillac Deville Limousine and it made a great difference in the ride and control, and got rid of a tire that had a 1/4" bump in it as seen by the tech that spin balanced it for me.
Try to have it balanced first, and check for out of roundness, and also inflate the tires to the max. pressure allowed by the specification as indicated by a placard on the inside of the driver's side door.
Good luck on getting rid of this vibration problem at 50 mph.

have you driven up a kerb at a high speed? this sounds like a tracking problem. you could also try getting the wheels balanced.
hope this helps.

HI, this could possibly just be a simple as a set of bad steer tires. make sure the front tires are balanced and you front end has been properly aligned recently.
Now, if the tires are new or, they have been rotated and balanced properly recently, i would then move on to the alignment process. if you front steering Assembly has been aligned properly and, you still have this shaking at 50 mph, this will confirm a more serious issue concerning the power steering gear. i would then check the tie rod ends for ware in this case.
next, check the idler arms as well. make sure the intermediate shaft is tight and, the entire rack or, circulating ball Assembly is tight and, not loose.
