Front Hub Bearing Replaced - Alignment Needed?

Quick question: I just had the front hub bearing replaced on my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4X4. Does this normally require an alignment? My alignment seems off now whereas it didn't before the repair. The dealership is refusing to do an alignment as a part of the service (Lifetime Maximum Care). Do I have any ground to stand on?

Re: Front Hub Bearing Replaced - Alignment Needed?

If you are talking about a front wheel bearing, no alignment should be necessary.

I had a left front replaced within a couple of thousand miles.

If the bearing was real bad it might have caused some irregular tire wear. Try rotating tires front to back.
