What all has been checked or tried so far to correct the problem?
Expert:  Paul M ASE Master replied 6 years ago.
Have you been driving in snow recently?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

Nothing yet I have a fiancee who doesnt want to fix it so nothing has been done currently

 

Expert:  Paul M ASE Master replied 6 years ago.

If you had been driving in snow it could be as simple as having snow in the wheel

 

if it has been happening for a while and is not snow related it could be tire balance at the very least

 

but if it is shaking that bad you most likely have bad front end parts like:

 

wheel bearing

 

tie rod ends / inner or outer

 

it can be anyone of these reasons

If it doesn't happen until after reaching 50 miles an hour most likely the tires need balanced as the vibration would be there all the time if the linkage was worn. With a balance issue it will come and go with speed
