Could be a number of things, start by swapping front wheels left to right to rule out radial pull in the tyres, could be bad specs, spot on specs may not be achievable if it doesnt have camber castor kits. Start there, the list is endless, rule these things out first.

Did they not test drive it after the alignment?

If the car is lowered it should have a camber kit on it. By adding and subtracting shims on either or both sides will fix the problem as long as the rest of the suspension is fine. You need a suspension place to to it precisely for you as i did it on my car because of the same dramas.
