Some one didn't do a very good alignment. If it was done recently, you may won't to take it back. Unless you been hitting some major pot holes. Vibration that comes and goes like that is usually tire balance. Might want to have the suspension checked. But they should have done that before the alignment. You can't align a vehicle if it has bad tie rods, ball joints or struts.
Very little info for a fix. Tie rod and upper ball joints do not make a
front end shake. Lower ball joints wear out before the uppers do.
Front end shakes at what speed, if you have a broken belt in one of your
front tires you will notice it more at low speeds. Mud or snow stuck in
wheel will make them vibrate at speed. Lug nuts tight since front end
work? You need to give more info. Switch front tires with back tires. If
shake is in steering wheel it more than likely is front end but if you
feel it in your seat it is more than likely in the rear of the car.
there are a few things that are more likely than others .. first tire balance .. if a tire loses a balancing weight or gets its rim dented or if the tire is simply worn .. then you need to rebalance the wheels .. this should be done every year or so anyhow .. a broken cord or belt in a tire will also show up when they try to balance as will a bent rim .. this will tend to shake the car above 50 mph .. thats also not a safe condition since the tire could fail unexpectedly .. you might observe a tires tread wiggling when observed moving from another car or on a rack when you spin the tire .... tires are most likely the trouble but a worn out CV joint will also shake at certain speeds .. usually this shows up at low speeds or as excessive slack in the drive system .. warped rotors are a frequent source of vibration . but usually the problem is most noticable as brakes are applied .. the best bet is to have the tires balanced and inspected .. that will give you lots of information .. one more thing you dont see as much anymore is wheel vibration at higher speeds caused by worn ball joints or tie rod ends .. the wheels will actually oscillate above a critical speed . you will often see cupping on the front tire treads if this happens .. that cupping problem can also be observed when the tires are balanced .. the tie rod ends can be checked with the wheel off the ground .. shake the tire left to right .. excessive slack would mean worn tie rod ends ...
