Car pulls to the left after brake job and tire rotation - need advice
Had the front pads/rotors replaced and the tires rotated. There is no vibration, but when I get up to over 50mph the car steadily pulls to the left. No such problems before the work was done.
Mech suggested checking tire pressure, it's ~34psi (warm) on both front tires and ~32psi on both rear ones.
I also suspected that an improperly installed brake pad was rubbing against the left rotor, but the wheel is cool to the touch, and I would expect it to be pretty hot after a 45min drive if that were the case.
I am thinking I need an alignment, but why would a brake job cause it to go out of whack?
Add more. 34-36 cold should help limit some of the pulling. If it's still there, Reggie is right, the tire rotation probably brought a poorly worn tire up front, which you would notice right away. The brake pad probably wasn't the issue, since the wheel is cool.
