HI,
Yours has rear coil over shocks. This means that the shock goes thru the coil, instead of being mounted in separate location. They are similiar in looks to a strut, but are in fact a shock.
Rear shocks can cause a vehicle to be out of alignment and cause vibration. As to whether they are the cause of your current issues on the alignment, I would have to know the front and rear alignment specs for the caster, camber and toe-in. Without knowing these, it is speculation at best on whether the shocks are the cause of the vehicle being out of alignment.
