Tracking Issue

So I bought an '03 Accord coupe a little while ago and from day one I noticed an issue with the amount of pulling it does. I've brought it back to the dealership twice now to get an alignment done. The first time they "did what they could" and at first it seemed fine, but once I got onto the highway it was quite noticeable that it wasn't fixed. I didn't get a chance to bring it back in to have them look at it once more until today. It was barely in the shop for more than a few minutes when I got a call saying that they're unable to adjust the alignment anymore because it's lowered. Now, I'm no stranger to getting lowered cars aligned, but they've always been McCrap's up front and solid axles in the rear. As far as I know, this car has the double wishbone setup up front. I'm not entirely sure how alignments on lowered cars differs with this than the former (if at all).

And for what it's worth, I didn't know the car was lowered when I bought it. The salesperson told me it was on some lowering springs, but I figured he was just trying to goad me into buying a car based on just that (it doesn't even look like it's lowered, to be honest).

Thoughts? Was going to take it into a local shop that specializes in alignments on lowered cars on Monday but I wanted to hear any of your guys' opinions first.
