They should have inspected the parts before doing the alignment. Pay particular attention to the lower control arm pivot bolts and bushings. Jack the front end up and put the jack stands under the frame, not the lower control arms. With the control arms hanging freely, use a pry bar to try to move them in and out. Look for shiny areas under the bolt heads and nuts. That is evidence they are sliding back and forth.
