when you press the brakes: warped rotors. change them and the pads
when you accelerate: could be axles, or wheel bearings.

based on what you're describing, i don't think so. but you might be able to get them resurfaced versus buying new rotors. that'll save you a couple bucks.

it's a problem with your alignment set up. i had the exact same problem with mine. from what alldata says that it occurs from speeds 58 -62 but ultimately it really about 45 to 55. the problem that is says has something to do with the imbalance of the wheel/tire/hub/disc assembly in the front end. To fix this is says you need to do a dynamic off car wheel balancing calibration check. if you need the whole entire page including the symptoms, cause and all that just message me with your email and i'll send you the papers.

the pull to the left is alignment.. could also be a broken part.. like a tire rod

All that stuff could be. But just to make you squirm, it also could be a flat spot in one of your tires. IF your car sat for a while or if you slammed the brakes REALLY hard at a high speed, you may have a spot on your tire where the rubber either hardened flat ( from sitting ) or wore flat (from braking) either way, your tire will only vibrate at a certain speed, kind of the idea that glass breaks at a certain pitch, anyway , with all that being said, it is probably your rotors, change them ( or resurface ) both and remember to change your brake pads with it, also get an alignment..
