Do I need an alignment after Pfadt rear tie rod and rear trail arm kit?

Am I going to need an alignment after the Pfadt
Rear kit. The shop I bought the kit from told me No and the shop that is going to install the kit said yes. Just trying to get a correct answer.

It is recommended. I had the same kit installed a month ago and went for the alignment.

Ok sounds good I'll just get one after it's installed. Thanks.
By the way how do you like the kit?
Did you notice a difference after it was installed?

The toe link has a plain bolt on one end and the toe adjusting eccentric on the other end. If the technician marked the eccentric theoretically the alignment would be unchanged. In theory. If one of the toe links was tweaked from a bad bump, your alignment is off. If the OE am is slightly different in length on center your alignment is off. You alignment may not have been spot on when you changed the parts. When you do suspension work on an IRS car, an alignment is in order.

Yes, I would definitely recommend an alignment afterward.

Best regards,

Thanks guys for the input. I'm definitely getting it done. Redline Motorsports is doing the install and there is a shop right across the street that is going to do the alignment right after. Couldn't of worked out any better.
