Did you change your struts yourself? And did you find slotted holes?
Or did you have a shop change your struts, they told you the alignment should be checked, so they did that, and found it was out?
Whatever they found, and whatever they did, I don't believe could be related to changing struts, because there is nothing disturb-able or adjustable in a strut change.
They could have found a pre-existing condition from hitting a curb or whatever, out of toe in or camber, but loosening and "adjusting" a strut's mount is not possible. There is no movement there (unless someone has slotted the holes).
