You have to jack the front wheels up in the air and wiggle all the suspension connections with your hands and a pry bar to find what is loose.
Tie rods, ball joints, control arm bushings, steering rack bolts and the rack itself, wheel bearings all loosen up eventually and can cause shimmy
Worn shocks, bad front end alignment, and unbalanced wheels doesn't help either.

Your mileage sounds low but unless you've owned the car since new you have no idea if someone changed the speedometer over the years... it slides right out of the dash.
