Worn parts cause alignment issues, take it to another shop next time. I can't imagine the would bend rods back into shape but who knows.

My tj was the same way its easy to tweak the tie rods it wont look bent but it is just enough to throw off the tow. I upgraded to the rugged ridge crossover steering and havent had any issues so far. The only downfall is you cant use stock 15" wheels with it, my wheels r 15x8 with 4" bs and they clear.
