unless somehow he moved the radius arms, pretty sure theres no adjustment in that, but there are caster cams and stuff

Not true. There is a eccentric bushing in the top ball joint the can be replaced to adjust camber/castor.

Now, most times as long as your ball joints are good and everything is still stock then there is no reason to adjust this. Even with replacing ball joints there is no need to have a alignment done. The only reason you should have to adjust toe is if any of the steering linkage has been replaced.

Most people will take it in for an alignment thinking they need one. Shops will check it and charge you the same and tell you they checked/adjusted everything. Not really their fault, because your the one who took it in and told them you wanted an alignment in the first place.
