2014 RLX Pulling to the Right

Hoping for suggestions...
I had new break pads and rotors turned last week. On my drive from the repair shop, I noticed the car was pulling slightly to the right. I had an appointment today for new tires so I thought I'd wait til today to let them know.
New tires were installed today as well as an alignment. They took the car out and noticed it was STILL pulling to the right. They took it back in, did a second alignment and still the same. I have an appointment for Wednesday
to bring it back in but I thought I'd see if anyone else had this problem. I did some searching and didn't really find an answer. Thanks in advance for any comments.

Whoever did your brake and rotors job probably over tightened the nuts. I'd check those first.

or perhaps a caliper can be sticking? someone needs to inspect the brakes.

It may be a stretch, but have them check to see if the wheels are straight, not bent. Hell, something as simple as over torquing the lugs could cause alignment/poor ride quality.

When Acura asked for an inspection of the rear arms and replacements, are you sure that it was done?

Yes, it was done. I actually had the actuators replaced under warranty because they were noisy.

Well, they took it back in and said they fixed the problem....but it didn't work. It seems like the adjusted the steering so the steering wheel is lined up, but the car still pulls to the right.
I guess I will be making an appointment with the Acura dealer. NOT happy.

If this is the problem, then an Acura dealer should've thought of it by now, but I'll mention it just in case.
