    Alignment Question

    Ok, I just replaced the front and rear shocks, kept stock springs. In the process I busted a front sway bar end link, so those got replaced.

    The only part I can think of that would necessitate an alignment would be separating the upper a-arm from the thing that connects the upper to lower.

    I didn't use a pickle fork. I just whacked the bolt with a hammer until it popped free.

    Now that every thing is back together, Do I need to have the car aligned? I had an alignment a few weeks ago. I'm not sure if it is required or not, thanks.

    no alignment needed. the adjusting points are on the lower control arm.

    ok, that's what I thought. one of the guys asked if i did any thing to the lower arm, i said no. I could see anything on the upper arm or the end links that would be part of the alignment. It's not like i changed the ride height.


    thanks
