Is alignment needed after just replacing rear shocks?

I had another thread about my KW V1 rear shocks leaking. I need to have my stock rear shocks put on while I send the KWs out for repair. When the OEM shocks are put on will I need an alignment? Then when I get the KW shocks back and have them put on, will I need yet another alignment?

Depends how long your KWs will be out getting worked on. I dont see a problem with not re aligning till you get your kws back. There are ppl out there that never get an alignment on their car,i think you should be fine.

Depends on how you remove your strut, If you don't have to remove any of the links then a alignment wouldn't be necessary
