I suspect the red highlight on the toe is for toe out - you need to ask the alignment shop or someone familiar with the equipment they used. If it is toe out, ask why they didn't fix it. Toe out will make the car wander. Circle track racers use toe out to help the car turn easier.

Now you realize when you take it back for alignment, you need to tell them to give it as much caster as they can, not to go by the specs!

I don't know if you could keep your shims together and marked to go back in the same place, if it may work out? At least it should be close to being right, I think?

These cars worked for 60+ years with stock power steering, using the stock specs, without wandering all over the road. https://www.trifive.com/garage/57%20C...Manual/3-3.gif
Call Steve at Authentic Automotive and discuss your problem. https://authenticautomotive.net/

You might have too much pump pressure. For years the pumps I included with my power steering kits had the normal 850 psi rating. Sometime earlier this year, for various reasons, the rated pressure was increased.

If this is your issue, I can send you a part that will drop the pump pressure, it's the pressure relief valve inside the pump. Very easy install, you don't even need to remove the pump to change it out.

Send me a PM, subject "Pressure".

This is a long shot, but I had the same problem. Turns out someone pulled the steering column for painting and then forgot to put the lower brace back in at the bottom of fire wall.
