The best way to explain it is that it feels like its vibrating from the front and the steering wheel shakes a lot.

By steering wheel shakes, do you mean it vibrates or shakes so much that depending on who's driving, they may not be able to hold onto it as well as the wheels themselves are shaking to a point where you think you could lose control?

There's a biiiig difference between the two with completely different repairs.

No it's not crazy. It is a little unsettling when on the highway but I don't feel like I'm completely out of control. And it seems to only happen from like 50-60 mph.

Check your tie rod ends - do a dry steering test and see if there is any slack in any of them. Balancing your tires wouldn't hurt either.

Vibration, shakes, wobble.... I am tempted to say ..perfectly normal. lol. You are going to have to rule out any of the suggestions made here.

I just replaced my rotors and that seems to be the problem with mine and I had the same exact symptoms as you! If you need them then try doing that mine would only shake between 50-60 mph

Did it shake even when you weren't applying your foot on the brake?
