Did the shop get everything back in spec when they pulled it? Did they give you a print out of where they measured everything as they went to make sure it went back in spec? Were you able to get a 4 wheel alignment done?

It sounds like to me that something is out of spec and when you come off the power it's cause the chassis to go out of balance. If it was a hard hit and they just eyeballed it's probably way out of spec. I used to work in a body shop and we had a frame rack with a laser measuring system. That worked well and could be the car back into spec or tell you if you couldn't. This really sounds like the unibody is still is out of spec.
