What would you recommend doing instead?

A front end pull is one of three things...1. Obviously an alignment issue (the alignment readout could show perfect but keep in mind...the vehicle is "not moving" during this process) 2. The tires (even though new) could have bad belts.. (as noted earlier swap the 2 tires to rule out bad tires..THIS IS THE EASIEST AND CHEAPEST WAY TO MAKE SURE! (if nothing changes then you have ruled out "bad tires") 3. check the straight alignment by painting a stripe in the center of each tire and scribing a line scratched by rolling the tire. now roll the vehicle back about 10 feet and back forward to a straight slow stop on your driveway and simply measure the scribe marks between each tire at the front (mark to mark) and at the back. (should be somewhere from the same measurement on both or slightly (maybe an 1/8 inch smaller (or narrower) at the front. If this checks out and the tire swap did not make a difference then "something is "MOVING" on the frontend when rolling. Did the same people do the front end work that did the alignment (the alignment guy has many to do and does his alignment an moves on to the next if his numbers look right) ?? Maybe have another shop look at the work that's been done. This info comes from personal experience from 3 of my "own" hotshot trucks chasing front end issues for close to 1,000,000 (combined)... It's not rocket science! Good luck!
