After alignment...pullling and tight brakes

I couldn't find anything when searching so I finally replaced the lower ball joints and upper arms and had the alignment done. First thing I noticed was the brakes were very tight now. After going on the highway I notice I'm getting a pull to the right after about 50 yards. I'm going to take it back and have the shop look at it but thought I would ask if anyone here had any ideas as the cause so I have any idea if the shop guys are jerking me around. Thanks.

Sounds like you have a brake problem not an alignment problem.

If the brakes are catching on the rotors, how hot will they get compared to if they aren't? I felt the rotors on both sides when I came home yesterday and felt like a stove top. Then again I do have several speed bumps on the road I live on so I assumed they would be a bit warm, just not sure what is considered too hot.

I did have the shop look at the alignment again, but since it's a bunch of germans they still didn't get it right after a second look. Still having the pulling and other odd symptoms I didn't have before.
