Hi there:

Steering wheel vibration can occur due to multiple mechanical component failures ranging from wheel bearings, shocks and struts wearing out or tie rod’s and CV joints that need to be replaced.

Due to the complexity and multiple possible causes, it’s best to have a professional come to your home and complete a car is vibrating or shaking inspection first; before any repairs are made. This will allow them to pinpoint and diagnose precisely what’s causing your Chevrolet to vibrate during those driving conditions.
