My front end will shake if I am going about 60-70mph and I curve to the left. It does not shake going straight or veering to the right. For some reason it does this only to the left. It is not my rotors or tires. Had them checked out. Does anyone have an idea? Will have a mechanic check in a few days but would like to do something sooner.

If I was you.. I'd get under the car.. and look around at all of your bushings.. most of your suspension components connect to each other with rubber bushings.. after a while they wear thing and dry root and die... thus giving you things such as what you speak... look around and see if you can see anything like this mainly on the left side..

Good Luck,

Les

you need to checkout the wheel bearings. they tend to vibrate and cause noises like you described. its either that or bushings.
