Can alignment cause vibration?

Does anyone know if the car is out of alignment, could it also cause a vibration or a slight shimmy?

In most cases, its going to be a wheel balance issue rather than an alignment issue that is going to cause a shimmy or vibration. Alignment shouldn't really be a huge contributing factor

How fast are you driving when the issue occurs?

actually the car now has a little over 2k miles. The shimmy has smoothed out on it;s own. I think the tires had to break in as well as the suspension and the car.

Could possibly be the Tires were out of round slightly.

Might have been sitting in one spot for a while.
