If so that may or may not have been done properly so have that checked as well....so don't forget to order a new one of those or have the old one checked.
Good luck, it really isn't all that hard to do, don't forget to have it re-aligned or do it yourself.
Besides now you know it is done and done right, and don't forget to repack it,
