After I have been driving for about 10 minutes on the highway doing anywhere from 60 to 70 mph my front end starts to shake really bad and as soon as a apply the lightest amount of brake it increases the shaking 2 times as worse. It feels like my whole front end is going to fall apart. I don't know what the problem is my first instinct was that my tires were unbalanced but from my understanding that should happen any time I hit a certain speed not after 10 minutes of driving 60 to 70 mph.

You're right. If this were just an imbalance, you would feel it immediately and it would get worse the faster you go.

This is definitely a suspension related issue, and unfortunately, it could be a dangerous one. But it's impossible to tell you with 100% accuracy what it is with out test driving it and having a look myself.

My suggestion is to take your car in right away. Because I've seen (Actually) tires pop off of cars while zooming down the highway. And of course this has the potential to not only kill you, but others as well.
