Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the problem started after the work was done then there is either an incorrect part, something was done incorrectly, a bad part was installed, or there is an alignment issue.

Can you post a copy of the alignment printout?

Do you feel binding when turning while sitting still?

I'm invoking the 100% money back guarantee after chatting with two idiots! I can hardly see the stupid answers due to the continued $26 phone call upsells!!!
