My '86 Brat had warped rotors. Would vibrate REAL bad braking at high speeds. Wouldn't vibrate much braking at low speeds, but at low speeds the car would vibrate while driving.
I replaced the rotors the other day and put new pads on. The car drives smooth now, brakes smooth. The rotors were so warped, you didnt need to be on the brake for it to rub in a certain spot... making the car vibrate.
Could also be a combination of unballanced tires and bad rotors.

edit: and regarding what the general said, definately look at the axel too, it could act exactly as you described. with the car lifted, rotate the wheel and see if it's binding at any point.
let me know what you find, i'm interested.

Vibrating under hard acceleration indicates bad CV's
Vibration all the time is usually unballanced tires.
If its a bearing, it wouldnt vibrate until the bearings were REAL bad. By that time, you would have heard alot of grinding from whichever bearing was bad.
