What's going on is death wobble. If it didn't do it before the alignment then they may have set the caster wrong. if not then check all your TRE's or ball joint's.
A steering stabilizer or two will help. Or go hydro assist and it will cure it. Sorry not trying to be a salesman.

weebles wobble but they dont fall down. seriously with those tires any bit of play in the steering is gonna cause it. make sure everything is tight and the stabilizer will help

death wobble sux bad!

*wheels bad balance
*excesive toe in
*play in bearings (knuckle or wheel)
*shot bushings
*loose/wore tre's

dampners help allot but try and find the sorce. <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">

bear in mind that the allignment with stock tires may not be the proper allignment for the 40's. The toe in may be excesive if set with smaller tires.
