I have Mitubishi galant 1998 model, have done 304000, recently I did wheel balancing and tyre swaping because it was vibrating a lot when it reaches the spped of 70 miles/hour. I also changed teh front break pads at the same time at a garage, after that while driving, my car moves to right side, I literaly have to hold the steering otherwise car will go completely n the right side. More over vibration is still there and more so at idle. Kindly suggest a remedy. I will be thankfull to you.

regards

Switch the two front tires side-to-side. If it pulls the other way, suspect a broken belt for the vibration. Tires can have different rolling characteristics that causes a pull even when there is no broken belt.

A vibration at idle when the car isn't even moving is due to an engine misfire or collapsed engine mount that allows two metal brackets to touch and transmit vibration into the passenger compartment.
