Front arm thrust bushings but no alignment?

I recently found the bushings has worn out so I am replacing it under warranty. Is alignment also covered under warranty? Or alignment is not needed? SA told me she will let me know on Monday but I can't wait to hear it lol
Any thought?

If the bushings are worn out during the first 4 years full coverage then they are replaced for free, after the bushings are replaced an allignment is required which is covered as it would not be required if the part did not fail.

thrust rod bushings are considered a wear item and not covered under warranty as far as i knew?

Been looking around and have read some are covered and some not, I assumed the 4 year initial coverage would take care of these to keep good will.

When mine go I am going to either use the solid rubber M bushings or the heavy duty ones from Turner

The stock or M part are under $100

Video on replacement and what to look for

I had to get mine replaced right before my warranty ran out, but they didn't give me an alignment, tried to charge $800+ for an alignment and new rear tires. (tires were worn out because of the alignment issue).
