So, I'm assuming your dad is the one who drove the car back from the shop, told you the engine was running nicely, but it didn't drive well because of the issue with the "broken frame"?
If the issue is "in the front", first thing I'd check would be the strut brackets. My guess is, during the alignment, one of them may have come loose from the frame rail.
There are a number of things it might be, but if it was in for an alignment, the majority of other alignment and steering related brackets are bolted on. The strut brackets are welded.
