I've only had the car a week but it seems to brake fine in a straight line. I was thinking that maybe one of the brakes was maybe not releasing completely

i think wishbone tracking or buckled wheel/bearing. sounds pretty unsafe..if its real bad you should bring it to a guy with a lift who can inspect the bushes etc....

andy could be right. u can jack the car up and with the wheel off the ground and see if there is any play in the wheel .... it will surely wobble somewhat if the bearing is shot

Go get your wheels balanced, its the cheapest thing to do first. Then look at your front control arm bushings. You dont need a lift to do this, just jack the car up and look at the bushings.

If it were unbalanced wheels or a wheel bearing, it vibrate in a straight line too. I've got a shot front right wheel bearing in my race car and it vibrates at speeds over 90, no matter what directions the wheels are pointed.

stephenslyman is on to something with the bushings, get those checked. It could also be that your tie rods are shot.
