Not likely. Most probable is worn out Idler Arm, or Tie Rod Ends, or both. Missing upper control arm bushings (rubber that has rotted away), and even worn out ball joints can cause this problem to be aggravated to the point were you loose control of the car.
Unless there is fluid pouring out of the left front brake wheel cylinder it is most likely worn out parts. You state that it was recently aligned which implies a trained tech looked at the car first to check for worn out parts. Problem is he probably has never seen a car like yours and has no idea what to check.
