Will bearing hub replacement cause steering vibration?

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.

When you put a car in drive or reverse and let off the brake and turn the wheel it vibrates in the steering wheel but it doesn't vibrate when you drive what is that?

Check your power steering fliud, if it is low this could cause the vibration you are feeling.
