steering vibration when cornering at speed

i have a vibration from the frontend when cornering at high speed. usually after 60mph. It only happens when i am taking a left turn. im wondering if it could be the tie-rod ends. Increasing the front tyre pressure seems to reduce the vibration but makes for a rough ride.. im considering replacing the front-end including the control arms, tie rods and bushings. anyone else have a similar problem? any insights would be appreciated.

Sounds like tires that are out of balance. How many miles on that set? It could also be that you lost a wheel weight.

Get the fronts balanced and you'll find out.
