Here's what I'd check, in order:
1) Tire balance
2) brake rotors for warpage
3) ball joints, tie rod ends, stabilizer bar bushings, struts, and all the other sterring/suspension components.

(1) and (2) can be handled with a quick trip to a tire center.

(3) can be initially checked by jacking up and supporting the front end, and seeing if there is any free play in the front wheels (left-right looseness points towards steering components, other looseness points towards ball joints or other suspension parts).
