What could it be?

I feel a subtle shaking on my steering wheel while cruising from a 30-70 mph drive. Car also veers to the right.

-I had gotten an alignment multiples times because I had adjusted my ride height due to wheel clearance and after every time, car still veers to the right.
-All my wheels and tires are balanced
-I've used a thread's suggestion on here to test if there is play on the wheel bearings by jacking the car up and try to wiggle the wheels from top and bottom. I couldn't really tell if there is any play.

What could be my issue? Should I just replace bearings as this is the most likely culprit?

Swap tires from one side to the other. If the car veers left you know it's the tires.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention, I had gotten brand new tires as well.

Try the tire swap, and if that doesn't change, check and see if your right caliper is hanging up. A caliper hanging up will cause your symptoms

Will inspect the calipers. When I had the fronts lifted, I spun the wheels and it sounded like pads weren’t separated all the way. It sounded like friction of the pads and rotors while spinning.

The large impact bushing on the lower front control arm is fluid filled.

Consider tramlining as another source. Stiffer sway bars, wider tires, or endlink preload are all sources of tramlining.

I have eibach sways with front settings to the least stiffest. Wheels are are 18x9.5 with 275/40 tires. You think maybe my endlinks need replacement?
