Take a look at your steering shock, these generally fail after about 80k miles. Of course it's also critical that your steering linkage is without play throughout. Squeeze the tie-rod and draglink ends with a large pair of pliers. If you see a large amount of movement they're history. Be sure that the shop that does your alignment has the needed tool to pre-load the linkage when adjusting toe, its the only right way.

It sounds like your wheel(s) may be bent. Have the tire shop check the wheel for trueness.

The alignment settings are: Caster at 10.25 degree; Camber at 0 degree; and Toe-in at 1/8". Good luck.
