It shouldn't be m8, Either you have hit a pot hole which has done some serious damage to the suspension or the tyre is knackered. Other option which people often over look is having a heavy object in the boot which unsettles the car to look at.

They wont check alignment angles just safety related stuff like no rust near load bearing points of the chassis etc so they might have missed something.

Why not take it to kwik fit and ask them to check the angles, you will get an answer in 15mins and it shouldnt cost much.
