Sounds like something is still worn out. Or they are not doing something right.

echoing jakejohn and 01. sounds like something is worn out and whoever you are paying to look at it isnt catching it. have you actually looked at your alignment numbers? are they not sticking? has the car ever been in an accident? more background would help.
