Default Steering Wheel Shakes after Alignment

My alignment was off so I decided to get an alignment. When I got the car back the steering wheel now shakes. It dosen't shake all the time but when the car is just warming up. What could be the problem?

Thx BC!

Does it shake when the car is fully warmed up? after a short drive?

Why is this in the lounge, it sounds like a mechanical issue..
What year is the bonne?

Mods...once we get a year..please move appropriately.. Thanks

Maybe bad rubber/broken belt/sidewall?

How long was the alignment out?
Rotate the tires front to rear and see if it helps.

Any snow buildup? Causing an out of balance condition? (washington DC)
What year and trim level is your car? Please put that and your location in your profile/signature.
Why are you posting this in the lounge? Is this some other car than the Bonneville?

Have you considered taking it back to the shop that did the work? Sounds like their problem from your description above.
