Sounds to me like the problem is internal to the steering unit. It may have been damaged in the wreck and occasionally slips several teeth on the rack and pinion. The alignment people wouldn't see anything on the outside. The camber problem would only cause tire wear and not a real drivability issue you would notice unless it is far out. Hope this gives you some idea where to look.

I agree with mike805. The teeth can jump several teeth in the rack & pinion and the alignment person wouldn't be able to visably see it. But I believe if you bring it to Toyota and tell them your experiences with several alignment atempts, they will definatly go to the Rack & Pinion as the first source of the problem solving. I am a firm believer that there are times when only the dealer can resolve difficult problems. Because their trainng is specfic in their vehicles.
