My front right wheel vibrates at all speeds and it seems to be getting worse. I have checked the tire and the wheel was recently balanced. Is there something going on with my suspension. Thank you in advance

You can usually find out more while the wheel is still on the car. Set the e-brake, put the gearbox in neutral, and jack up one front corner of the car at a time so that the tire just clears the ground. Get a block of wood about 4" high, position next to the tire that is lifted, lay a pencil on top of the block so that the tip is just clearing the lip of the wheel at about the "6 o'clock" position. Slowly spin the wheel and watch for any runout, ie, the gap between the pencil tip and the wheel should not vary noticably. You can repeat this check on the inside of the wheel also. While your at it, spin the tire quickly while observing the tread pattern for any abnormalities.
