>steering wheel vibrates when driving
I think this is a tire balance issue?
>steering wheel shakes (different from the vibration above) when braking
I think the brakes are misaligned
Cant do either myself
What do you think this will run me
Should I just leave it be?
>I think the brakes are misaligned
Huh? I guess there could be build up on the rotors, causing the pads to meet the surface unevenly, or possibly a slightly warped rotor. Simply have the rotors resurfaced.
There's lot of causes as to why a steering wheel can vibrate. Might have to try a couple different things, but a nice alignment and pressure adjustment could definitely help, and won't hurt you in any way.
vibrate while breaking, if not warped rotors (abused or not broken in properly), it could be your tie rods (inner? replace inner and outer, parts are cheap enough, then get an alignment). that's what it's been the two times I've experienced it.
