Wheel vibration issue

I have a had a problem for a few month that I hoped would fix itself by ignoring it. Since it has not fixed itself, I come to you guys for advice. The problem is this I have been getting vibrations in my steering when I drive at very specific speeds ie. 80ish. However recently I have been getting the same vibartion when I make right hand turns, especially under accelration. If I try to make a sharp turn which puts significant weight on the front driver tire, the steering wheel shakes very heavily and I start drifting towards the wall. I looked at the suspension on both sides and so no obvious breaks or problems. I'm not suire what the problem is and would appreciate advice. I have a suspicion that it is the cv joints or the like. Any help is aprreciated.

Well, at the very least, this is a good old fashioned tire/wheel being out of balance, way out of balance, as if a weight has dropped off, or a tire ply has shifted...

Normally when a CV joint is worn, you will hear a clack-clack , or a click-click..

Does the out of balance shimmy abate with "power on " ??
