What could be causing a shimmy shake in a 93 Dodge Spirit at between 20 - 30 mph?

Usually a low speed problem is either a bent wheel or a slipped belt on a tire. It could also be the C/V joint... if it is the C/V joint it will do some bad shaking depending on how bad the c/v joint is gone, the longer you wait to fix it the more of a shimmy and shake you will get

What causes steering wheel shimmy?

It could be many things... It could be warped rotors. It could be loose tie rod ends. (If a slower, less noticeable drift) It could be unbalanced tires on the front end. It could be CV joint(s) ready to go out. I can't think of anything else at the moment.
