    For vibration I'd first try rotating tires right-to-left. Cheap. Somtimes all it needs.
    For info on replacing front bearings try a search of this site. Lots of stuff wirtten about it over the years, some with photos. I had a complete set of 52 photos on Photobucket before they changed their policy.

      Wheel bearings and seals are available at
      The rears are easy to do but require care to set the preload correctly.
      The fronts are harder to do. Check if they have play before replacing. Is there any play from your tie rod ends or ball joints? How are your suspension bushings doing?
      Tires not balanced properly is the most common cause of the shake.
      Second is probably worn suspension or steering components.
      Third is tires that arent round.
      Jack the car up and spin the tires, see if they spin smooth or are out of round side to side
