SOME FREE KINDA ELIMINATIONS YOU CAN TRY IS TO

1) LOOK FOR ABNORMALITIES IN YOUR TIRES (BULGES IN TREAD, MISSING WHEEL WEIGHTS, ETC)

2) LUG NUTS TIGHT?

IT MAY BE HARD TO FIND A "LITTLE PROBLEM"

3) SWAP YOUR FRONT WHEELS TO THE REAR. DO THEM ONE AT A TIME, DO A TEST DRIVE BETWEEN SWAPPING. THIS MIGHT CLUE YOU IN AS TO WHICH ONE IS THE PROBLEM CHILD

4) HAVE SOMEONE MOVE THE STEERING WHEEL CW AND CCW MAYBE 20 DEGREES OR SO (OVER AND OVER), WHILE YOU WATCH STEERING COMPONENTS FOR "SLOP" OR WEAR

5) RAISING YOUR FRONT WHEELS OFF OF THE GROUND, THEN SHAKING THEM 3 AND 9 O'CLOCK----AND----12 AND 6 O'CLOCK MAY REVEAL PLAY IN YOUR WHEEL BEARINGS

6) IF YOU CANNOT FIND IT AND TAKE CARE OF IT YOURSELF, SOME ALIGNMENT SHOPS WILL "SHAKE IT DOWN" AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT IT MIGHT BE, BEFORE THEY MAKE ANY REPAIRS
