what has been checked so far?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Nothing has been checked, I just wanted an indication as to what might be the problem!

Expert:  Steve replied 3 years ago.

the most common causes of a steering wheel vibration would be a sticking brake caliper, warped brake rotor, wheel balance/alignment or wear in the front end suspension

 

it could also be related to the steering rack, transfer case / differential, or wheel bearings.

 

generally having the vehicle raised for inspections and wheels removed will reveal the cause
