Question on Axle replacement on 29hfs xlr

For those of you who had their axels replaced on the 29hfs, did your replacement come with an alienment? we had ours done last fall right before the snow and I never thought to ask if it was needed, or if the dealer did it. Do I need to be concerned about this?

You can do a minor check by measuring from wheel to wheel on both sides. The measurement should be the same or within 1/8" or less, otherwise, alignment should not be necessary.

As OC said, you should be fine. Replacing the axles did not affect alignment anyway as the new ones will bolt up to the same spring hangers as the originals which are welded to the frame. So, if you were in alignment before, you still are. If you were out before, you still are.
