I have current replaced the following in this car:

Both front strut assemblies
Passenger front tire rod end
Driver front lower ball joint
Rear shocks
Rear control arms

Over the past 24 hours, the car has had all 4 tires replaced and has been aligned.
In the process of getting it aligned, the mechanics noticed that the passenger tire rod end was free spinning. So I replaced it at at my house and drove it back to the shop. On the way there, the car was swerving side to side like crazy when approaching around 55 mph. Now that the car is aligned, if I’m veering to the right while driving, I almost lose control as if the front or rear starts to swerve.

This sounds like you have a suspension component loose or the alignment is way out. Since you had the suspension checked, I am going to assume something is still loose. The fact that you said it feels like it is swerving that is normally something in the steering or in the rear end. Since you have replaced parts in both, we need to go back through and make sure everything is torque properly or you don't have other components that are loose.
