I would take it to a shop and have it looked over.You might need every thing in front and rear.They do ware out.leave the shims alone you will make matters worse.

The rag joint could have play in it creating a "wobble" in the steering wheel. There are just too many variables for an internet diagnosis at this point. It needs a good look over with a prybar.

Did you ever check the rag joint like fleming442 suggested?

Pull up the plastic cover on the steering shaft that is hooked to the power steering hose,

Take a look at the round disk in the shaft.

Have someone turns the wheel with the engine OFF.

This way there is pressure on it without the power assist

Did the shop who did the alignment not road test the car after they did the alignment?

Shops dont check there work anymore if they did they would be working on the same car for weeks.

Could there be play in the rear control arms and the rear end is moving around?

Check your front tires and rims. See if the front tires might have a ply separation or a rim is bent
