My front left CV axle was leaking so I replaced both front CV axles.
I took it back to firestone and asked if I need a new alignment. They said no because the tie-rods, although disconnected from the control arm, were not removed and that the adjustment was in the tie-rods.
But I think they had to disconnect the steering knuckle from the strut to get the axle out, so I think it definitely it affects the wheel toe/camber.
Is firestone right? Also, a little bit of the transmission fluid leaked out when the mechanic removed the front axles…do I need to put that back in? The mechanic said no need.
