Is alignment needed after having front inner and outer CV boots replaced (996 C4S)?

Greetings - I recently had my front inner and outer CV boots (both sides) changed on my 2003 996 C4S at the local Porsche dealer. It was preventitive as one of the boots had a small tear. I understand that the removal and installation requires some work (8 hours on muscle work apparently). Since getting the car back I have noted that the handling is off. I don't have the same confidence in corners at speed as the car feels unstable and at times wanting to lift. It is  not low tire pressure however I do see a very slight positive camber (visually). The dealer says that the CV boot replacement should not require a realignment but I see conflicting info on boards. The dealer also has not ruled out the fact that the tech might have mistakenly affected the alignment. They will take the car for a drive later in the week to assess. Can someone who has had this work done please provide any advise from their experience with the same repairs?
