trover, I wouldn't let them weld the D link until it's aligned to your satisfaction unless you're cool with a crooked steering wheel for however long and steering that is potentially not centered.
First, tire wear problem. Good luck with the dealer techs and I mean that in a kind way, but anyway. Get alignment (caster, camber (not adj, but possible bent axle), toe and center the steering wheel) then when it's to your satisfaction, let them do the recall.
Otherwise I can imagine the conversation going my like this...
You... "You welded my steering and it still is eating a tire and pulls to the right like an old tow truck."
Them..."Mr. Roverman, I'm sorry, we can't doo anything, we just welded yer steering shut. Uhh, you can talk to my supervisor but he's not here now, out taking his GED classes so he can learn himself about cars n stuff."
