Check all your tire pressures first.

make shure everything is tight. I had a problem when they went to align it I didn't get the upper ball joints to seat down tight.

I would guess something was left loose possibly with the install itself.

They don't just pop out of alignment. Most likely that something was left loose as Greg suggested. If everything was installed correctly and tightened properly then it should be fine. Don't forget that, after installing a lift, it's always a good idea to re-torque all your suspension components after a couple days of driving.

Question

With that much lift does it have an additional steering stabilizer?

Another thing to remember is that if you are running very wide tires that they will pull you around the road with every little dip and curve in the pavement. There is no way around it, it is just the dynamics of running over sized tires. It is part of the reason I got rid of my 22's for 17's, not to mention the cost effectiveness of it.

Something was left looses and when you hit hole it Jared it out of alignment. Most places warranty alignments for so many miles see if they will check it free just say wheel is off and it pulls and you just did it.
