OTOH... the alignment shop could measure the wheel angles - so it may show you if any of the axle housings is damaged.
And they can probably recognize a damaged front end.

all checked out at the alignment shop. It just doesn't turn very well it seems.

Are your steering stops adjusted correctly?

Steering is a safety issue. Don't half-ass this. I don't want you running into me at 60 MPH 'cuz you couldn't steer correctly. Same as saying your brakes sort'a work but I gotta' pump'em 10 times to stop.
Until you get this fixed properly, you will be legally liable since you admitted your steering is not right and you continue to drive.
Visit a frame shop or Rover repair shop and take care of it A.S.A.P. You got the vehicle on the cheap for a reason, but now it's time to pay the piper.

Our 03 has a terrible turning radius, compared to the 01. Stops are longer on the 03. Search out getting older shorter version and replace.

There is a way to improperly assemble steering box, so that turns do not go from one side the same to the other. Our friend is not very specific in his descriptions. So, it could also be about this. Solvable only with disassembling and reassembling the parts in their correct positions.
