What would cause a vibration in the gas pedal and steering wheel between 60-70 mph in a 96 cirrus?

I would suspect a tire out of balance. Have your tires balanced and see if it goes away.

During acceleration? I'm not sure. But when both idling and acceleration the engine's combustion can cause a lot of vibration in the steering wheel if you are in an older vehicle.

The vibration was so severe in the front end, I had trouble steering the car. I could only feel the vibration when the car accelerated. Earthquakes cause a distinct vibration of the earth.

Steering wheel vibration when applying brakes is usually caused by warped disc brake rotors

The most common cause is a tire out of balance. It can also be a bent wheel, defective tire, wheel bearing, or steering parts worn.

This is probably due to worn brake rotors on the brakes, if there is no vibration when driving then this will be the cause.

1996 c60 truck if you turn steering quickly at low speeds vehicle shacks acts like drive train until you stop

Vibration does not cause sound, vibration IS sound. Sound is merely how our brains interpret the vibration that comes into our ears.

Depending on the severity of the vibration, could be a bad tire (worn on edges) creating a "wobble" on turns, or may be a bad wheel bearing (cv joint)

Rack and pinion steering will not cause warped rotors. The tie rods, which are part of the system, can cause a vibration if the bushings on the ends are worn out. Warped rotors will do the same thing, and this will show up when applying the brakes.

yes, A vibration with a frequency high enough to cause itching

A bad wheel hub searing can cause vibration on your steering. Loose or broken steering and suspension components can cause vibrations when accelerating, decelerating or changes in speed. Worn tie rod bushings, damaged struts or shocks are common causes of vibration. Drivetrain problems, such as a bad wheel bearing, damaged CV-joint (front-wheel-drive cars), a bent or imbalanced driveshaft (rear-wheel-drive cars) or missing chassis/drivetrain damper weights are all examples of speed-sensitive vibrations.

Tire out of balance, bent wheel, or if it vibrates only when braking you have a warped rotor.

There are a number of forces that could cause vibration in a ship. Friction for example is a force known to cause vibration.

All steering linkages have either a "U" joint to align the Steering Colum to the steering box or rack OR They have a noise and vibration damper made of rubber and cloth like a tire side wall. Either of these components can fail and cause the symptom you describe.

No, what you're describing sounds more like a warped rotor. Sometimes a rotor will warp as it gets older. It's caused by heat.

a weak battery will not cause an engine vibration.

Vibration of the tire is caused by a uniformity parameter called "variation of radial force". Usually a vehicle's steering wheel will vibrate (called torsional nimble) at a certain speed. This vibration is caused by the harmonics of this radial force. Picture the side view of a tire with different size springs within it. The force of these springs cause a distortion of this force and you feel this distortion in the steering wheel.

The simple anaswer is that it depends on the cause of the vibation. If the vibration is caused by imbalance then the vibration should vary with the square of the speed (i.e speed doubles vibration increased by x4). Imbalance is not the only cause of vibration so you need to establish the cause first before you can anwer the question. There are plenty of places where you can buy a vibration chart but a good free site, which I use, is VibroNurse which has a tool for analysing vibration (as well as some very strange pictures!!!) ... the URL is
