95 deville vibe in front end
Recently put new struts on and got it aligned. Rides a billion times smoother except for a vibe while moving the wheel any to the right.
Moving to the left even a fraction of a turn and the vibe goes away completely
My question is.. I know I need rotors up front as the passenger side is warped giving me a decent vibe under braking, are the 2 problems related? The vibe while moving the wheel right is minimal... equal to say going down a smooth gravel road
PO put new pads up front but the rotors are shot on both sides

Re: 95 deville vibe in front end
You should only feel a rotor vibration when braking, not turning. That may well be a bad (left) wheel bearing.

Checked all that last Monday while it was up on the rack for the alignment. I know I have a tie rod getting a little wore on both sides but not enough to worry about yet
Driver side hub is newer but the passenger side is factory for all I know...
I had considered it but hoped I was over reacting haha... wheel bearing with enough slack that turning right places just enough side pressure for the warped rotor to rub the pads
