I had my timing belt, water pump, idler pulleys and tensioners replaced and also the 2 serpentine belts. Right afterwards, there was a new grinding type noise coming from the front right wheel area and my steering wheel was no longer centered. Went back to the shop to find out what was the problem was. He explained something about the control arm which I didn't understand, but then said the problem is a rubber boot kind of thing that had already deteriorated and that when he did the timing belt, that the car had to sit in a way that it's weight was not supported like it would be normally and that caused the already deteriorating rubber to tear. So now I need to have that repaired on both sides, although it's worse on the right side and it's going to cost around $500 to do this to both sides.
Does this sound right or is it hinky? Was there a way to support the weight of the car while I assume it was up on the rack, that he should have done to prevent this? I'm a little bit peeved that after paying for a large repair that now I have to have an even more costly repair done. If this is a common occurrence, should he have mentioned it before he did the work?
Thanks in advance.
