Alignment won't cause shaking, that's a balancing issue.

Find a shop with a GSP-9700 and have them balanced.

naw i didnt raise it at all, the shocks i put on might of lowered it a lil bit but not much, when i was running the 20s i had put them on it shook alot but im guessing the wheels just need to be balanced but i know i need an alignment becuz the wear on the tires isnt even

My guess would be worn front susp parts due to the wearing pattern of your tires/shake. I'd start there. Check for play in all the components. If it's tight then the alignment got thrown off one way or another. Then get the wheels balanced/road forced..
