spacers and alignment quesiton

So i am at 49800K on my car.
Yesterday i picked up the car from the dealer with(front) new rotors and pads and paid for an alignment.

i told them to the alignment because i felt the steering was a little off center.
They told me they checked and found nothing wrong.
Fine. i drove home (about 20mls) and didn't notice any issues.

got home jacked up the car and added 20mm H&R to the fronts (VMR710 8.9width, et 35)

This morning, driving in.... the steering is "noticeably" off center....
i searched the forum to see if adding spacers could potentially do that but found nothing...
i should add that i found that adding spacers does nothing to the alignment......

did i screw something up or did the dealer?

Current plan... drive home (slow) and lose the spacers n see what happens
