Default Strange wheel alignment issue

I had a wheel alignment yesterday that I had very good initial impressions of. The car tracks nicely down the road and the steering wheel is perfectly level - but when I went out on the open road I found that after taking slight bends that are perfectly appropriate to take at speeds 80km/hr plus, the car takes on a real shake/wobble and becomes really quite unsettled. Anyone know what could go wrong with a wheel alignment to cause this? I already checked that all wheel nuts are tight and can confirm that there is no play in any of the wheels - either hands and 12 and 6, or at 9 and 3.

Sounds like one of the wheel weights have come off, may need a dynamic wheel balance

From the description, I would say its a precession issue rather than wheel balance. I would be looking at steering issues - I wonder if a lock nut is loose on a steering rack end, such that dynamic forces can induce some movement where the 9 & 3 shake can't?

Could it be still locked in low range causing the drive line to be loading up and releasing?
