Make sure you check the minimum thickness of your rotors before reusing. My rotors on my X5 are huge and heavy but get eaten through. They would never last a second use.

should steering wheel be straight after alignment

Right and left front looks too far off. Did you ask why the after measurements are so far off? Last time I saw that as the difference in alignment correction there was suspension damage.

Get a tube and listen for noise when the tube is pointed at the water pump
