Cool

I think I would start with tire pressure and shocks. It could be as simple as soft tires, make the ride smoother but tend to wander and cause premature tire failure. Check the sidewalls for psi and then fir shocks jump up and down on the bumpers, if it keeps bouncing after you get off, it's shocks. eliminate the easiest first.

Also, if toe-in is incorrect the tires won't track properly and the car will tend to drift. I would take it back to the alignment shop and ask them to set alignment so the steering feels firm.
