Wheel alignment alone will NOT cause a vibration. A vibration that was cured after a part was replaced followed by an alignment was not fixed by the alignment.
I used to laugh when customers would come in and tell me to align their car. I would try to ask them why they wanted an alignment, but was often met with 'I just need an alignment.' From there, I would say ok and just do what I was told. I tried to help, but was met by know it all customers. If their tires looked like hell, I would tell them that is something they should replace soon. After these customers picked up their cars and left they would often return about 20 minutes later. Their response... 'You didn't align my car right, it still shakes at 60."
This is when these customers were educated on what an alignment can accomplish. Usually new tires, or a balancing was done and the customers would then leave without any problems. All they had to do was explain their problem from the get-go.
