Previous adj as a suspension wears, maybe unevenly, can require re-centering the wheel when new parts are installed.
You don't adjust the tie rods AFTER an alignment to center a wheel.... And you shake down the vehicle before and check ball joints because you would never align a vehicle with more than tolerable play in the joints, bushings, tie rods.
