looks like all they did was set the toe?

the caster is off, that will cause a pull and maybe uneven tire ware.

i am really not sure. drives great. handles great for what it is.

they do know what the axle is from so i told them to do whatever they needed to get it to drive right.

caster should be negative some, otherwise you would be steering in the ground.

that is false. find a good alignment shop.

I always have gotten mine back to acceptable.

And heck I dont have any stock front suspension and it handles and tracks just fine.
