Forester 11 Forester Short block replacemt - alignment off after swap

I just got my 2011 Forester back from the dealership after having the short block being replaced due to oil consumption. They took over 2 weeks to complete but gave me a brand new XV limited to drive in the mean time.

When I first hit the freeway after leaving the dealership I noticed it wanting to pull to the right pretty hard and it didn't do this before taking it in.

Do they mess with any steering or suspension part when pulling a motor? I don't want to go in and get mad about something if there is no way possible they could have screwed it up. But if that's a normal thing then I want to have them do a re-alignment.

They wouldn't have pulled anything that would do that. Check your tire pressures yet?

Is bigger than yours.


No. We unbolt the engine from the transmission, unbolt the motor mounts, disconnect the wiring and hoses, unbolt the PS pump and AC compressor, drain the coolant and oil, then yank the motor out. We don't touch your control arms, struts, or steering at all.
