Re: steering
Addco sway bars, front and rear are I believe the preferred mod to fix this. Not sure about the front but the rear upgrades from 9/16" diameter to 1", correcting a lot of understeer on the vehicle.

You may want to check to make sure the bar is still properly bolted in and the end links are not broken, this could be a problem if the understeer is extensive.

This is a fairly easy upgrade to do, unbolt the old bar and bushings, and install the new bar and bushings. I haven't done this one yet but its on my list.

Re: steering
If the steering wheel isn't straight going down the road they didn't do the alignment right. Take it back and tell them to make sure the wheel is centered before they start.

Re: steering
Yeah... I would say centering the steering wheel is something to do in the driveway yourself with the drag link, but if they couldnt figure that out, I would want it completely redone to make sure everything else is right.
