Wheel bearing replacement require alignment?
When replacing a front wheel bearing, you have to pull off the hub to have the bearing pressed out and the new one pressed in. And to remove the hub, you have to remove the two bolts that connect to the strut. Now removing these two bolts will knock the alignment out, correct?
I just called a shop to get a quote on a front wheel bearing replacement and I asked does the price include an alignment and the guy told me it doesn't require an alignment. I said if you remove the two bolt on the strut that it will knock out the alignment. And the guy said those two bolts don't affect the alignment and that he has been doing this for 15 years, blah blah blah. Now this place was a Goodyear which works on every make and model so I'm assuming he was mistaken.
