Question about 1992 Mazda MX-3
Vibration or a "shimmey" is an indication that the tires need to be balanced. This is not related to the wheel alignment you had done A poorly balanced tire will vibrate on its own, transferring the vibration all the way through the steering wheel. Have the tires balanced. If this doesn't fixy your issue, then the problem lies between the rotors (could have a warped rotor) and the rack and pinion. Best of luck on your problem.

I own a 1992 corolla and have the same issue, had an alignment done, new tires put on and balanced, took care of most of the vibration but still does it at high speeds, had the tie rod ends and ball joints checked. all good. found out that i had a broken wheel stud on 2 tires, got those replaced and now the vibration is gone
