Steering?

Here's the issue:

Short and sweet, at around 55 miles per hour it's the worst but I have that kind of wheel jiggle that ****ty cars have when they are going too fast. And my steering doesn't feel as tight as my friends mustang. So far I thought it may need an alignment but my mechanic didn't say it needed one when I went in for inspection. Any ideas? Bad suspension? And please let me know how to check whatever you think the issue is if I can do it myself

How's the shape of your tires they may need to be balanced.

It is most likely a wheel balance problem, however it could also be a bad ball joint. Do you remember when it first started? Was it right after you got new tires? They might have missed a wheel during balancing.

I only got my car about a year ago used and it happened from the start I believe. I even have two sets of wheels with fresh tires on them and it happens on both. I'll look into the ball joint thanks!
