Default accident repair /now drifts left

Accident at pass side front wheel. Broke the upper cast iron part of the spindle and tore up the fender and door. A "quality" shop did repair and front alignment but the steering wheel doesnt rest in the original position and the truck drifts left when not holding the wheel. It also tracks badly. Does any hint of frame damage come into play?

go to a frame shop and have the frame checked. Also, the steering wheel should be straight. Have that checked too. chances are they screwed up the alignment.....
