The tires, tie rods, and rack and pinion are the most common areas to look at for a vibration in the front end. The tires may be out of balance or have a stop leak inside one of them. The tie rods could be worn and loose, and the rack and pinion could have worn out bushings. I would recommend having a professional, such as one from YourMechanic, take a look at your car to diagnose the vibration issue that you are observing.
