Toe out, RR wheel ? what were the readings of your 4 wheel align printout from that repair? was the repair performed with correction to where the parts attach, then "crashbook" measurements taken before going ahead with wheel align measure ? you can have it rechecked, or look up measure values to go by in the Mitchell "crashbook" that a repair tech uses. They offer them sometimes at libraries if you cannot get to the frame rack for a bench,set,measure or 4 wheel align check. Driving thru a puddle onto a flat dry floor can illustrate what you actually have goin there.

After measure is made, you could appeal to an insurance for a supplement or the manager of the service area where you had it corrected. they can check quick with road test and comparisons to a similar vehicle to understand your experience you describe. If you repaired it yourself, you need pro guidance.
