Is the alignment necessary after CV boot replacement?

I've contacted the warranty company to ask why the alignment was not covered since Lexus said it was "necessary". I would think it was necessary since the axle was removed.

I've got a complaint...

Warranty covered it! But not the alignment!

Lexus asks for $507.15 to replace CV Boot

They said my inner and outer boots need to be replaced. I am clueless on CV Boots.
It is a 2007 ES350 w 75K miles.

$507 seems a bit high, but what do I know? Comments? Suggestions?

I am going to have all the tires balanced again to just check once more.

It is in BOTH the steering and the seats. What is the torque converter lock up?

Violent shaking when the tires spin on wet pavement

I just noticed that when I am on a slick street and my tires spin, the anti spin light flashes on and off and I feel a strong vibration while the tire slips. It doesn't seem natural.

My dealer says there is a paint that can be used, although you will lose the white up/down markings etc. But it would look so much better. I have the same problem.

And don't touch the steering wheel. Drive with your knees which would free your hands to make phone calls and eat a Whatburger with fries. :)

Noisy is the new normal

I find it strange, but I am glad it is not a bearing, if transmissions have bearings.

Need a center cap for a chrome wheel

My tire dealer didn't secure the center cap on my chrome wheels on my 2007 ES350. So it came off and I ran over it. Dang!

Any idea where I could buy 1? Not 4. 1.
