      I have a 2001 Ford Windstar and I am going to change the front struts and sway bars. Do I need to (or have to) get a front end alignment after I do the job? Thanks for your help.

        Yes,
        changing shocks will throw off your alignment.

          If the bolts holding the struts are eccentric bolts, then yes, you will need alignment C8-)

            My pet peeve is alignments… Here in ontario 90$ to have it put up on the rack and it takes no time to accomplish…. I have tried every method out there to do it yourself alignments and although I can get it darn close it’s not perfect… In the end good tires are expensive and I always run pretty good rubber, an alignment issue can eat tires and cause your vechile to handle strangly…

            It’s a good idea for sure!!!

              Some alignments can be very difficult if your dealing with rusted bolts and so forth so sometimes i can justify the price C8-)

                I don’t believe you will need an alignment after doing that work. Check to see if the bolts are ‘eccentric’ as has been suggested but I don’t think they are. Also check the upper mounts if they are ‘slotted’ try to put them back in the same location and then have the alignment checked.

                Some alignments are easy to do but some are a real pain, as someone that has done them I can say that some days it goes well and you make good time and money but other days you loose your butt on something that is rusted or a bad bushing in an area that is impossible to get to. I hope to do a video on this some day. Good luck.
